Rosie Goodwin extends Cookson’s Trotter story

Tilly Trotter's LegacyTilly Trotter’s Legacy by Rosie Goodwin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s been a number of years since I read the Tilly Trotter trilogy, and the concern of forgetting the content and characters along with wondering if Rosie Goodwin would match the writing of the great Catherine Cookson almost saw me not pick up this book.

I am so glad that I did, Rosie Goodwin writes in a style so close to that of Catherine Cookson it genuinely did not feel like a different book to the first 3, also the way in which she gently recapped the reader with the lives of the main characters brought it all flooding back to me yet she still managed to maintain a pacy story that was full of the usual twists and turns you would expect from Cookson.

I am a busy mum of 2 under 5’s yet I managed to read this book in only 2 days as I really could not put it down. Wonderful and enjoyable.
