Thomas Mallen of High Banks Hall had many sons, most of them illegitimate. But to all of them he passed on his mark; this was a distinctive flash of white hair running down to the left temple, and known as the Mallen Streak. It was said in the surrounding Northumberland countryside that those who bore the streak seldom reached old age or died in bed, and that nothing good ever came of a Mallen. This novel is the first of a trilogy that will follow the lives of the Mallens through succeeding generations.

About the Author:

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 Tom Cookson, a local grammar-school master. Although she was originally acclaimed as a regional writer - her novel The Round Tower won the Winifred Holtby Award for the best regional novel of 1968 - her readership quickly spread throughout the world, and her many bestselling novels established her as one of the most popular of contemporary women novelists. 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.
