Catherine Cookson, 1906 - 1998 British writer Catherine Cookson was born in Tyne Dock, Co. Durham. She was born illegitimate and into poverty with a mother who was, at times, an alcoholic and violent. She also believed, for many years, that she was abandoned as a baby and that her mother was actually her older sister.

Thomas Mallen of High Banks Hall had many sons, most of them bastards.

THE MALLEN STREAK is the first in a trilogy of novels following the fortunes of the Mallens through succeeding generations. Thomas Mallen of High Banks Hall had many sons, most of them bastards. But to all of them he passed on his mark-a distinctive flash of white hair running to the left temple, known as the Mallen Streak. It was said that those who bore the Streak seldom reached old age or died in bed, and that nothing good ever came of a Mallen. Nor did it. In 1851, Thomas Mallen found himself a ruined man, forced amid scandal and disgrace, to sell the Hall and adjust to a new and very different mode of living. With him went his two young wards and their indomitable governess. Then, into their lives came the Radlet brothers of Wilbur Farm, one of whom bore the unmistakable Mallen Streak.

Another sweeping saga by Catherine Cookson, this time featuring patriarch Thomas Mallen - who sets forth a series of events and circumstances (as he predecessors before him) which take us into yet another exciting trilogy. The Mallen Streak is the telltale white streak of hair in the males and the somewhat stubborn and wicked ways in the women. While the books are rife with drama, scandal, passion and pain they are written tastefully without colourful language and descriptive sex scenes.
Begin your journey with the Mallens with this book before moving onto "The Mallen Girl", and finally "The Mallen Litter", and you won't be able to put them down. I couldn't.

This is another great story from Catherine Cookson. I have most of her books in hardback but now I am starting the collection all over again on Kindle. What a joy it is !! The Mallen Streak was one of the first in hardback I bought many, many years ago.
I have just purchased the other two editions of the Trilogy on Kindle.
I have never been disappointed with any of CC's books although I have to admit that some of them would rate a very low star, The Mallen Trilogy is top of the list for enjoyment without a doubt .If you enjoy reading Catherine Cookson books you will thoroughly enjoy this Trilogy for sure .

The second in the sweeping saga by Catherine Cookson, this time featuring the offspring of cousins Barbara and Constance - Barbara and Michael. While he Mallen streak is the telltale white streak of hair in the males, in the woman it is more the somewhat stubborn and wicked ways. While the books are rife with drama, scandal, passion and pain they are written tastefully without colourful language and descriptive sex scenes.
Begin your journey with the Mallens with this book before moving onto "The Mallen Girl", and finally "The Mallen Litter", and you won't be able to put them down. I couldn't.

As an avid reader of Catherine Cookson books there is nothing bad to say about any of them. Her books always have many twists and turns; usually a bad character and a lot of drama. This one was no exception and not disappointing. This is my 2nd read on the book by the way, I previously read it in hard cover and now have purchased and re-read it on kindle.

I enjoyed the story. I like to read what this author writes and find her stories interesting. In this story she presents a family trait that shows itself in different generations and affects many people. The stories about England in the 1800's show how the people live and how they approach everyday life.

This book was surprisingly good. The narrative was very high paced and the story captivating. It is the first of three in this Catherine Cookson trilogy that centers on the offsprings of the Mallens; known for their cruel and disruptive behavior. Drama and shocking plots are rife in this first book, so be prepared to gasp out loud at times.

As with the first in the series of the Mallen Trilogy, this book also rated high in my opinion. The story continues on from the Mallen streak and it's good that although there is backstory. it doesn't overpower the narrative of the book. I find nothing to dislike in this story by one of my favourite writers. I would recommend it to those who love family drama.
This was a gripping tale of a man who couldn't control his sensual appetites and the result/s which spanned generations to follow. Although the governess, who is the prime character throughout the trilogy, I was sorry that the actual perpetrator of the Mallen Streak was a seemingly weak character. A wonderful read for people who love good descriptions and gripping plots.
