The Maltese Angel

The Maltese Angel

(1990)
A novel by

 
Ward Gibson knew what was expected of him by the village folk, and especially by the Mason family, whose daughter Daisy he had known all his life. But then, in a single week, his whole world had been turned upside down by a dancer, Stephanie McQueen, who seemed to float across the stage of the Empire Music Hall where she was appearing as The Maltese Angel. To his amazement, the attraction was mutual, and after a whirlwind courtship she agreed to marry him.

But a scorpion had already begun to emerge from beneath the stone of the local community, who considered that Ward had betrayed their expectations, and had led on and cruelly deserted Daisy. There followed a series of reprisals on his family, one of them serious enough to cause him to exact a terrible revenge; and these events would twist and turn the course of many lives through Ward's own and succeeding generations.

THE MALTESE ANGEL displays Catherine Cookson at her towering best in this immensely powerful novel which spans more than three decades, from the 1880's through to the First World War, and reaffirms yet again the author's standing as the best-loved and most widely read of today's story-tellers.
