Our Kate is a story of a person and period. It is an honest statement about living with hardship and poverty seen through the eyes of a highly sensitive child and woman whose zest for life, liking people, and unquenchable sense of humor won through to make Catherine Cookson the warm, engaging and human writer she was.

Journal Entry 4 by FuryIII on Wednesday, March 30, 2005
I read a number of Catherine Cookson's novels growing up, and while they followed a reasonably standard formula (fallen woman, illegitimate child, Jarrow/Shields locale), there was an honesty and humanity to her stories that I always enjoyed. Imagine my surprise when I read this autobiography to discover that she herself was an illegitimate child. Although the writing is sometimes unpolished and even a bit awkward in the memoir, Mrs. Cookson shows what education and drive can do for the most desperate individual. Quite readable and very moving.
