Mary Hetherington dominates her family. She's runs a spotless house, and she's kind, efficient and generous - providing they do what she wants. But when her son brings home a girl from the 'wrong end' of the Fifteen Streets she soon takes against her. When she discovers that Sarah is loved not just by David but by all the men of the house, Mary realises that the 'interloper', if allowed to go unchecked, will become a challenge to her authority. Meanwhile Sarah finds that even the most proper people have their quarrels, and secrets they're anxious to hide . . .

In a house of secrets, a mother’s authority is threatenedAbout the Author:
Catherine Cookson was born in Tyne Dock, the illegitimate daughter of a poverty-stricken woman, Kate, whom she believed to be her older sister. She began work in service but eventually moved south to Hastings, where she met and married Tom Cookson, a local grammar-school master. Although she was originally acclaimed as a regional writer - her novel The Round Tower won the Winifred Holtby Award for the best regional novel of 1968 - her readership quickly spread throughout the world, and her many bestselling novels established her as one of the most popular of contemporary women novelists. After receiving an OBE in 1985, Catherine Cookson was created a Dame of the British Empire in 1993. She was appointed an Honorary Fellow of St Hilda’s College, Oxford, in 1997. For many years she lived near Newcastle upon Tyne. She died shortly before her ninety-second birthday, in June 1998.
