Josphine Cox returns to the land of her birth, the environment which provides so many settings for her novels, and in the company of her fictional characters rediscovers the influences which define her as a writer and which so enthrall her readers.

Piers Dudgeon has talked at length with Josephine Cox about her early years, and weaves together her childhood with the people she draws so vividly in her books. He has visited Blackburn where Jo grew up, delved into the town's archives, talked to people there who remember earlier days and taken many revealing photographs to complement the contemporary pictures he has unearthed.

The result is Jo Cox's story brought alive through character and reminiscence, photographs and imagination which will delight Jo's legions of fans.
