Found in the Laundry Room in my building.

I found this with another book by the same author. I hadn't ever read Catherine Cookson before (in fact, I didn't think she was my type) but, while I was waiting for the dryer, I opened the other book to read the first page. Before I knew it, I had read multiple pages and was annoyed that I had to stop to fold the laundry :) Ever since, I've been hunting down Catherine Cookson's books.

This one told the story of a woman named Emily and her struggles with tragedy, shame, and love. It covers a long span of Emily's life, so it's a long read, but worth it.

Will be leaving this at the newest Toronto OBCZ, Harbord House (150 Harbord Street in the Annex), during this month's Bookcrossing social.
