Tilly is a character that one can't help but love and the way she withstands the prejudices and harsh judgments of the townspeople is inspiring. This book gives a good description of what it must have been like to work in the mines/5(39). The question haunted beautiful Tilly Trotter, bereft after the murder of her beloved husband Matthew by warring Comanches. Summoning her courage, she fled America for the familiar English countryside. Tilly was Lady of the Manor now, richer than she had ever dreamed possible. Yet it was love for her children,/5. The Tilly Trotter Trilogy is another of Catherine Cookson's writing at her best. It is a wonderful insight into how to deal with suffering and even when you have it bad in your life. To go on. There is always another corner to turn with another story in your life with a different outcome for you/5(). Catherine Cookson repeats several lines at the beginning and the end of the second book of the Tilly Trotter Trilogy book 2 (whew, that's a mouthful or should I say a line full of t words.) The book is as good as the first book. The historical fiction is very graphic to say the least, but so very true/5(36).

  This is the second book of Tilly Trotter tetralogy. Tilly's saga continues by showing her involvement with Mark and Matthew and they struggled to survive in the wild Texas with the constant and bloody attacks from the Comanches. Another unforgettable tale written in such an engaging and moving way that we cannot feel the plot drops for any moment.4/5. Then came Rooney in based on the book ‘Rooney’ and directed by George Pollock. Katie Mulholland became a stage musical in , composed by Eric Boswell (Ken Hill wrote and directed). Despite all the films and stage plays adapted from her work, though, it was on Television that she achieved the greatest success. Tilly Trotter Widowed (Corgi) Mass Market Paperback – Mar 3 by Catherine Cookson (Author)/5().   From Book 1: Coming up sixteen, Tilly Trotter is different from the other girls in her village. Tall for her age and coltish, she is not afraid of taking on ‘man’s work’ to help out the grandparents who raised her in a cottage at the edge of the Sopwith Estate, only a few miles from the bustling Tyneside towns of County Durham.

Tilly Trotter's life has been far from easy, and returning from America to the County Durham village she grew up in only makes it harder. Despite her new status as Lady of Highfield Manor the old prejudices still exist. Branded a witch by the locals, hostility towards Tilly, and her children - Willy and adopted Mexican daughter Josefina - is rife.

Well I am "reading" this as an audio book. So far very good. I love audio books that are easy to listen to when doing mundane or non brain drain jobs. Catherine Cookson does a good yarn and is always easy. Will update review when finished.:) Read 4/5(1).
