A legacy of hatred can be a terrible force in life, over which not even an enduring love and all the fruits of material success may prevail.  Catherine Cookson explores this theme in a major novel that will absorb and enthral her readers as irresistibly as any she has written.

Roddy Greenbank was brought by his father to the remote Northumberland community of Langley in the autumn of 1807.  Within hours of their arrival, however, the father had met a violent death, and the boy was left with all memory gone of his past life.

Adopted and raised by old Kate Makepeace, Roddy found his closest companions in Hal Roystan and Mary Ellen Lee.  These three stand at the heart of a richly eventful narrative that spans the first half of the nineteenth century, their lives lastingly intertwined by the inexorable demands of a strange and somewhat cruel destiny.

A DINNER OF HERBS displays outstandingly Catherine Cookson's true storyteller's gift.
