Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0743212525, Hardcover)

A novel that is vintage Catherine Cookson, Kate Hannigan's Girl is alive with the captivating stories, detailed settings, and wonderful characters that have made her a beloved writer of historical fiction. It is the story of Annie, the illegitimate daughter of Kate Hannigan who fought her way out of the slums and into the arms of a kind and loving doctor, Rodney Prince.

In Kate Hannigan's Girl, Annie must come to terms with her roots and endure the cruel stigma of illegitimacy in turn-of-the-century England. When Annie meets Terence, a poor but Oxford-educated young man who lives down the road, she discovers a love and security she never thought possible. But when her mortal enemy Cathleen determines to destroy Annie's happiness, Annie must summon all her strength and faith to keep not only Terence but her family and life as well.

A moving tale that masterfully portrays the complex families and society of England's Northumberland countryside, Cookson delivers a poignant novel. Like the young Terence, fans around the world are sure to fall in love with Kate Hannigan's Girl.
