The Glassmaker’s Daughter




Set in rural Edwardian England, The Glass Virgin is a lavish, romantic upstairs-downstairs drama from a skilled chronicler of the human heart

As an only child, Annabella LaGrange lived a privileged, secluded existence, and had come to accept that her wealthy parents lived at opposite ends of their magnificent country estate and that she was never taken beyond the gates.

But at seventeen she learns something so shocking about her past that she flees her childhood home, forced to embark upon a new existence with an invented past. Suddenly Annabella must unlearn everything she has been taught about class and love . . .

About the Author

Catherine Cookson

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 best-selling 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.
