The woman who presented herself at the offices of a respectable firm of London solicitors was, the receptionist decided, clearly a vagrant. The clothes that hung on her frail body were filthy, and she seemed unable to speak. When she asked to see the firm’s senior partner, Alexander Armstrong, she was at first shown the door -- but when Mr Armstrong learned the name of his visitor, all the office staff were amazed at his reaction. For Irene Baindor was a woman with a past, and her emergence from obscurity was to signal the unravelling of a mystery that had baffled the lawyer for twenty-six years.

Catherine Cookson's final novel brings to a triumphant close a career which has spanned fifty years and over a hundred books. Displaying all the qualities which have made Catherine Cookson Britain's best loved storyteller, The Silent Lady is a fitting epitaph to a writer who has brought pleasure to tens of millions of readers across the globe through her wisdom, courage and humanity.
