Prolific, popular Cookson at her best (leagues above the relentless winsomeness of the Mary Ann series)-with wall-bending family fracases in the gritty idiom of working-class Newcastle, a story that sweeps on like wildfire gossip. Abel compassionately marries widow Hilda (who is distressed by passion), but he is really in love with Hilda's sister, lusty but nice Florrie, who will bear his child. A good man wrapped 'round by wicked, heart-of-gold, and just plain mixed-up women-and as in all the best of soaps, you'll find your resistance fatally lowered after a chapter or two. Cookson caviar.

Although this is not my favourite Catherine Cookson book it still was an enjoyable read. Just a little bit too drawn out. However there were surprising twists and turns that kept me reading to the end.

I liked it mostly but thought it was slow reading at times. Would recommend it however ! Love Catherine cookson books

The main character "the man who cried" was just not a great character and as the main character you wanted to like him; I couldn't. He was very weak and unsympathetic. I did like the ending.
lets go baby
I read this in twenty-four hours. It was a delightful story about a real man!

Abel Mason was essentially a good man, but unlucky in love. He was married and had a son and a mistress in 1931 in England. Abel's wife informs his mistress' husband of the affair and the husband kills the mistress and then himself. Unable to stay another day with the woman who caused the death of his love, Able takes his son, abandons his wife, and heads north looking for work during the depression. His wife reports the desertion to the police and swears that she will get revenge.
After several adventures during his travels, Abel saves an old man who offers him work. The man has a young wife with whom he never had sex. He dies and the wife asks Abel to marry her. He agrees reluctantly to avoid needing to resume traveling and to save his son the toil. Abel falls in love with his wife's sister and has an affair with her.
As one might expect, Abel's wife finds him after nine years of separation, and Abel is tried for abandonment and bigamy. He faces the maximum sentence of seven years imprisonment.
The story is well-told and its ending is a surprise.
