My Beloved Son

About The Book

From Simon & Schuster, My Beloved Son is one of Catherine Cookson’s most compelling and deeply moving novels—one you can't afford to miss.

Fatherless at five, Joseph Jebeau grows up to defend his country against Hitler's mad ambitions and to defend himself against his mother's ruthlessness and secrets from the past.

About The Author

Catherine Cookson lived in Northumberland, England, the setting of many of her international bestsellers. Born in Tyne Dock, she was the illegitimate daughter of an impoverished woman, Kate, whom she was raised to believe was her older sister. She began to work in the civil service but eventually moved south to Hastings, where she met and married a local grammar school master. Although she was originally acclaimed as a regional writer, in 1968 her novel The Round Tower won the Winifred Holtby Award, her readership quickly spread worldwide, and her many bestselling novels established her as one of the most popular contemporary authors. After receiving an OBE in 1985, Catherine Cookson was made a Dame of the British Empire in 1993. She died shortly before her ninety-second birthday, in June 1998, having completed 104 works.
