The Corner House




The rape of an innocent girl sets up a pattern of revenge and retribution.

When Bernard Walsh moved his family from Bolton to Liverpool he did not expect the past to pursue him. But then Theresa Nolan, consumptive, angry and bent on revenge, arrived in the city and settled within three miles of Bernard's new home.

While Theresa wrought havoc from the Mersey to the moorlands of Lancashire, two innocent children trod paths separated by fate yet joined by blood. Against a backdrop of dissent and violence, the two young girls began to wend their often troubled routes towards the tranquillity and comradeship of the Corner House.

Praise for The Corner House

“Very much the successor to Catherine Cookson. Her books are plot driven, they just rip along; laughs, weeps, love, they've got the lot, and they're quality writing as well”

Sarah Broadhurst on Radio Four
