 Relaxing in the Bohemian spa of Marienbad after a special secret mission on behalf of Kind Edward VII, Ian, Lord Arkely is appalled to overhear the sound of a woman being horribly beaten by a man in the adjacent hotel room.            He discovers that the room is occupied by Prince Friederich of Wilzenstein and Her Royal Highness Princess Mariska.            And peering out across the shared balcony he spies the young, slim, utterly beautiful, young Princess, clearly in desperate pain.            Lord Arkley is aware that the Prince has been wheelchair bound since being terribly insured in an anarchist bomb attack in which Princess Mariska has luckily escaped injury.             Clearly the paralysed Prince is taking out his resentment on the poor Princess, Lord Arkley believes, as he resolves to get to know this lovely Princess in distress.            ‘It is not so much that I am interested,’ he tells himself, ‘but extremely sorry that anyone so young and so attractive should be tied to such a brute, whatever excuses he may have for his disgusting behaviour.’            Nevertheless the next day he is startled to receive a letter from the Princess inviting him to dinner.            And so begins a web of intrigue and terrible danger – and in the shadow of the Princess’s predicament and the threat of war, the light of love flickers into life.

Master of romantic fiction Catherine Cookson is world renowned for her enthralling tales of love that triumphs over impossible odds. In Kate Hannigan, her very first novel, Catherine Cookson introduces us to the enduring story of her most charismatic heroine.

The moment he lays eyes on Kate, Dr. Rodney Prince is enchanted. He senses in this poverty-stricken patient an intelligence and warmth that's completely unexpected. His own wife, living in the oblivion of velvet cushions and lavish dinner parties, seems crude by comparison. Though they meet only briefly then retreat to their separate worlds, the image of Kate leaves an indelible mark upon his mind.

Rodney knows that Kate's spirit has survived life-long suffering at the hands of men. Her father, an embittered dock worker, directed his violent rages toward Kate and her mother. At age eighteen Kate fell victim to a smooth-talking seducer and became the unwed mother of a child she later compromised her dignity to support. Such circumstances only deepen Rodney's desire to rescue Kate and overturn the codes of a society that serve to keep them apart. As the kindhearted Dr. Prince unintentionally wins over the heart of Kate's fatherless daughter, he and Kate begin to acknowledge that the gap between rich and poor might not be so great after all.

Available now in the United States, Kate Hannigan remains a timeless tribute to romantic love. England's late, great Catherine Cookson has spun the unforgettable tale of a wealthy man caught in a loveless marriage, a young woman trapped in the slums, and their defiance of the mores of Edwardian society.
