The item offered is the hardback book - A House Divided written by Catherine Cookson. The book has 366 pages and was published in 1999 by Bantam Press a division of Transworld Publishers Limited. The book comes in its original dust-jacket with price label clipped. The book has been inscribed " From Steven Christmas 1999 " and has been read. Invalided out of the army at the end of the Second World War, Matthew Wallingham can't even look forward to his new future. As he lies in a hospital bed, he wonders what place there is in a new social order for a blind man - even if he is a decorated war hero. He has the sympathy of his family and his friends, but it seems that the only person who is able to help in his depression is his nurse, Liz. Outside, Britain is adjusting to the realties of austerity; the price of peace is plain to see in the shortages of daily life and the shabby bomb-damaged cities. It is to this world that millions of ex-service people are returning to families, homes and unfamiliar jobs in civvy street. Matthew is one of them. When he arrives home, he realises that his family have their problems too. His father is ill, and his mother obviously unhappy, while his younger brother, who has made a success of running the farm on the family's estate in the war years, is resentful that Matthew should think he can help him. The only person Matthew feels that he can talk to is his grandmother, and apparently she is regarded as a holy terror by tghe rest of the family. It soon dawns on Matthew that what few plans he has are not going to work, and he starts to look for a new career, and for Liz, for increasingly she seems to have become the focus of all his thoughts and his hopes for the future. But Liz herself has a shadow hanging over her that will bring a terrifying violence into the Wallingham family's life.In a career that has extended over more than forty-five years, Catherine Cookson, Britain's best-loved writer, has described a world she experienced at first hand herself - the social changes,the pains as well as the pleasures of the brave new world of peace. Catherine Cookson was born in Tyne Dock, the illegitimate daughter of a poverty-stricken woman, Kate, whom she believed to be her older sister. She began work in 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 throughout the world and her many bestselling novels have established her as the best-loved of contemporary writers. After receiving an OBE in 1985, Catherine Cookson was created a Dame of the British Empire in 1993. She was appointed an Honorary Fellow of St Hilda's College, Oxford, in 1997. For many years she lived near Newcastle upon Tyne. She died shortly before her ninety-second birthday in June 1998. The book is in good condition (see scan). Please note that the book weighs approximately 1kg unwrapped and despatch will be by either Royal Mail First Class Post or by Royal Mail Standard Parcels at a cost of £4.50GBP.   If you have any queries or require further pictures please ask before bidding. Thanks for looking and good luck.

We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
