The love child: a novel
Set in the northern English countryside that Catherine Cookson depicts so beautifully, this 19th-century saga tells of the romance of Nathaniel and Maria, who together have six children. They have never married, however, and their children are scorned and treated as outcasts. A dramatic portrait of a battle to overcome human cruelty and the restorative power of love.
