    1. This is the second in a trilogy, the first being The Mallen Streak. In the Mallen Streak we met the Mallens and their immediate family and servants. Only a select few made it into this novel due to death and tragedy. Once again, Anna Brigmore is a governess, this time over the late Barbara's daughter, also named Barbara. Constance, the young Barbara's aunt is across the hill running a farm. Also in attendance, is the maid, Mary, tho she has a much smaller part in this novel. The story focuses on [...]

    2. homas Mallen, a ruthless man with a taste for high living, has been brought to financial ruin by his only legitimate son. Forced to leave his familial home with his two nieces, Barbara and Constance, they have become increasingly involved with Matthew Radlet and his half brother Donald Radlet. But Donald is the ill-legitimate son of Thomas and bears the "Mallen Streak" - not simply a shock of white hair, but a disposition towards fury and evil. His relationship with Constance must surely end in [...]

    3. Bedside table read. The trap had hardly stopped opposite the cottage gate before the lithe figure of the young girl sprang down from it, ran up the back path, across the small courtyard, thrust open the door of the kitchen, and slammed her beaded handbag and the book she was carrying down on the table, which action caused Mary Peel, who was standing at the far end of the table, to space her lips widely apart and mouth her words in a loud voice crying, 'Now Miss Bar-bara you!'Jeepers but that is [...]

    4. I felt rather disconnected all the way through. Not once did I really empathize with, or feel any resonation with, a character.

    5. Let me just say, it has been a long time since i read this , but Catherine Cookson was a prolific writer and almost every thing she wrote is good, i just leave it there as i do not have the strength to review as mmany of her books as i have read. the stories just came to her.her last one she wrote speaking into a dictophone with the help of her husband, as she had to get the story out, shortly before her death.I Cannot remember name but i amsure it is searchable.

    6. This novel had some surprises within. I knew that the Author referred to a revenge being enacted by this Mallen girl, but I was horrified when I read just what form the revenge took. However, I do believe the character was in the throes of temporary insanity when she enacted her revenge. Quite an excellent writer, Ms. Cookson is.

    7. A great sequel to The Mallens. Barbara is a complex character not always easy to like and her rejection of her beloved governess was unforgiveable. A portent of things to come - infidelity, deceit and tragedy. Although there appears to be hope for Barbara in Daniel's love. A love it will turn out she does not deserve.

    8. I read all of Catherine Cookson's books some years ago and enjoyed them immensley. I recently re-read all of them and find that on a second look I found them all so very predictable, and was rather disappointed. However I'm sure that it is my tastes that have changed not the calibre of her story telling.

    9. Young Barbara has a deadly attraction to Michael and wants to marry him. She hates another young girl that Michael often pays much attention to. Barbara's hatred for Sarah places Sarah in dire danger. Barbara manages to alienate many, many people in her life, despite the compassion that was given her for her deafness. Several lifes touched in different ways.

    10. As in most of Cookson's books she writes with strong female characters overcoming some miserable circumstance or misfortune. I also love the English accents given her characters. If you like books set in old England and well developed characters, you will enjoy books by Catherine Cookson!

    11. I enjoyed the character Barbara because of her wildness and passion. It held my attention because it kept me waiting for her to find true happiness. The ending was disappointing for me. I would like to read the rest of the series

    12. Book two of a series of threeThis is book two in a family saga. I plan on reading the authors next book, The Mallen Litter. I have read Catherine Cookson novels before when I was younger and enjoyed them immensely. I want to read all of her books over again.

    13. I didn't like this book at first. Barbara was such a spoiled brat that it really made me sick. However I stayed with it and at the end it really turned into a nice book. Grant it not great but good.

    14. Having been written in 1974 it is an old fashioned romance story set in olden times - interesting but not compelling this day and age.

    15. Book two in the Mallen series was also good. I really enjoyed the ending but it looks like things start to go wrong again for everyone in book three. On to it to see how it ends.
