  • "Catherine Cookson was one of the world's most beloved writers. Her books have sold millions of copies, and her characters and their stories have captured the imaginations of readers around the globe. Now, available for the first time in this country, comes one of Cookson's earliest and most stirring historical romances: The Fifteen Streets. John O'Brien lives in a world where surviving is a continual struggle. He works long hours at the docks to help support his parents' large family. Many other families in the Fifteen Streets have already given up and descended into a dismal state of grinding poverty, but the O'Briens continue to strive for a world they are only rarely allowed to glimpse. Then John O'Brien meets Mary Llewellyn, a beautiful young teacher who belongs to that other world. What begins as a casual conversation over tea quickly blossoms into a rare love that should have been perfect. Fate steps in, however, when John is accused of fathering the child of a local girl, and Mary's parents forbid her to see him. The couple begins to realize that the gulf of the Fifteen Streets between them is a chasm they could never bridge-or might they still find a way' In these pages Catherine Cookson displays the irresistible plotting, scene-setting, and characterization that have made her a recognized master of historical and romance fiction. Fans of her novels, with their larger themes of romantic love and class conflict, will be delighted to find that even at the beginning of her illustrious career, Cookson had the power to captivate audiences. Filled with passion and compelling drama, The Fifteen Streets is a rare treat for lovers of romantic fiction."@en
  • "For the impoverished of 1800s Ireland, life on the Fifteen Streets is a prison of sorts. For no matter how hard each of them works, no one escapes. The eldest son in an ever-expanding family, John O'Brien, unlike his brooding father, carries the burden of his loved ones on his strong shoulders--and their cares in his breaking heart. When John meets Mary Llewellyn, a lightening bolt of desire sets into motion an unwavering determination to work his way out of poverty, for Mary is from a world of privilege and wealth that looks down upon his kind. Thwarted at every turn--first by John's dangerous brother Dominic, a violent bad seed, then by Mary's outraged family--the embattled couple must fight for what they believe in--a love that comes along once in a lifetime."@en
