A hardcover classic book entitled The Mallen Lot by Catherine Cookson. The cover boards are brown with the title on the spine in gold. The book has its dust cover. This is a Book Club Edition.
A chance reference to the triplet sons of Dan and Barbara Bensham as "the Mallen litter" creates a bitter resentment in Barbara that is to have far-reaching consequences. Barbara married Dan on the rebound from a disastrous passion for her cousin, Michael Radlet, himself now married and father of Hannah. Neither Barbara nor Michael can escape the memory of their love for each other, and when they meet again it leads to an explosive situation.
Dame Catherine Ann Cookson, DBE (1906 – 1998) was a British author. She is in the top 20 of most widely read British novelists with sales topping 100 million while retaining a relatively low profile in the world of celebrity writers. Her books were inspired by her deprived youth in South Tyneside, North East England, the setting for her novels. With more than 103 titles written in her own name or two other pen-names, she was one of the most prolific British novelists.
