Catherine Cookson, Author Center Point Large Print $29.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-58547-071-6
First in the Premier Plus! series of large-print books is the late British author Catherine Cookson's Riley, published for the first time in the U.S. Cookson wrote over 70 books during her lifetime, often focusing on the lives of the working class. Here she explores the complicated relationship between a younger man and an older woman. After a difficult childhood, Riley lands a job at the Little Palace Theatre, where he forms a bond with the actress Nyrene Forbes-Mason; all manner of complications ensue. Sensitively told, if at times melodramatic, this will appeal to fans of Maeve Binchy and the like.
