GOOD: The book is in good condition. The dust jacket shows the most wear, especially on the back cover. There is a smudge on the top edge of the textblock.
From the inside front flap of the dust jacket: “THE BAILEY CHRONICLES is a moving and heartwarming new romance from the superb and internationally beloved storyteller Catherine Cookson. Set in the northern English countryside that Catherine Cookson portrays so beautifully, this modern-day tale features an irresistible hero, Bill Bailey, who, form the moment he arrives to take up residence in Fiona Nelson’s home, makes his presence felt in no uncertain terms. As a young widow left badly off, and with three children to bring up, Fiona has come to know the problems of trying to make ends meet. So, despite the viper-tongued comments of her vain, selfish mother, Fiona advertises for a lodger. The result is Bill: somewhat rough around the edges perhaps, but nobody’s fool, and doing very nicely with his own business as a builder.
“It is not long before Fiona finds that she can’t remember what her life had been like before he came into it—for Bill Bailey possesses some extraordinary qualities that prove to have a great and lasting effect on the lives of Fiona and her young children, who quickly come to depend on ‘Mr. Bill’ for everything.”
This volume includes BILL BAILEY, BILL BAILEY’S LOT, and BILL BAILEY’S DAUGHTER.

"The popularity of the subject hardly needs explaining. Not only did Henry's reign stand out to later generations by contrast with the preceding troubles of Richard II and Henry IV, and the succeeding disasters of Henry VI, but Henry's almost miraculous conversion from wild youth to ideal king was an article of faith going back to chronicles contemporary with Henry himself. The king reborn from evil to good, and leading a heroic campaign to a famous victory, was irresistibly attractive." — A. R. Humphreys, Editor, in the Introduction
