Read full description of the books Rooney:Catherine Cookson is a very intelligent and sensitive author who came from a very humble background. She writes about life in the North of England during the early 1900s. This is history, although not the best part of history. It also shows what one can do when you have determination. In this book, Catherine makes Rooney a typical bloke of this time period. He does not like change and is very upset when his routine is broken. Even though by breaking it, things are opened up to him that he would never have imagined.
Read information about the authorCatherine Cookson was born in Tyne Dock, the illegitimate daughter of a poverty-stricken woman, Kate, who Catherine believed was her older sister. Catherine 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 contemporary woman novelist. She received an OBE in 1985, was created a Dame of the British Empire in 1993, and was appointed an Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford, in 1997.
For many years she lived near Newcastle upon Tyne.
