    1 thought on “The Cinder Path

    1. I m not really enjoying this one so I m bailing at 44% Too many unlikable characters and I m tired of everyone grousing at eachother.

    2. The downtrodden son of a farmer, married to one woman but in love with her sister, ships off to World War I in search of glory and redemption On the front lines, he must battle not only the enemy but also the demons of self doubt which have plagued him throughout his life.This movie is available at YouTube.4 Feathers in the Fire5 Katie Mulholland5 The Black Velvet Gown5 The Rag Nymph4 The Black Candle3 Colour Blind4 The Dwelling Place4 The Glass Virgin4 The Gambling Man3 The Girl4 The Maltese An [...]

    3. 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

    4. Very unlikeable characters The main man, Charlie is a wimp, fool, and sissy The sisters torn apart over him are Victoria, a mega you know what and Nellie, an alcoholic This so badly lacks Cookson s usual flair.

    5. Think I have read most of Catherine Cooksons books and I have enjoyed everyone that I have read This one was no exception Recommended.

    6. The Cinder Path is a family saga in the truest sense of the word, perfectly illustrating how the actions and decisions of one generation have effects that echo for generations to come.The book begins when the McFell patriarch, on an impulse to get out of the hat making and selling business and having come into money after his recent marriage, buys a farm with substantial lands Trouble is, he s never farmed Another difficulty is that he spends the rest of his life trying to make himself look bigg [...]

    7. I think this must be one of her best I especially liked the way she dealt with the Great War and its aftermath The chapters where Charlie is in hospital and as well as his shrapnel injuries is suffering with the effect of battle Fatigue or perhaps we would call it Post Traumatic Strees were exceptionally vivid Her characters are solidly built and believable.

    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. Story of charlie, a farm guy, with a tyrannical father He falls for Nellie though marries her sister, unable to take a stand Fights in world war while his wife cheats on him Finally finds peace with Nellie and comes back to his farm to live a life of peace.

    10. It was a gripping story of mistreatment towards people in many different ways Setting well formed, and the WWI parts enlightening The main character became appealing as the story developed An enjoyable read couldn t wait to find out how it ended.

    11. most of cathrine cooksons are great always been a fave of mine since nine the ones i dont like are to do with the story rather than her style.
