This book is the second of the Mary Ann series by Catherine Cookson, and I found it to be a wonderful read. The Mary Ann series is on of my favourites by Cookson. This book continues Mary Ann's saga with Mr. Lord, to whom Mary Ann refers to as The Lord. Her mischievous personality continues to shine through in a most delightful way. This is my second reading of this book, and I found it as charming as when I first read it decades ago. Cannot wait to re read the next in the series!

Once I discovered the Mary Ann series of 8 books, i was hooked. So great to pick up each book and know the characters, and read further happenings as Mary Ann grows up. A lot of the situations are so easy to relate to, believe, and you almost feel like you are there. I wish there were more books in this series. I started reading the series, beginning early November 2013 and finishing the last book on 20 December.

This series of books was the beginning of my reading experience as a child. It has been fun to read the series again. Well written, lots of laughs, some very serious parts and one gets engrossed with the family and all the happenings.
Highly recommend it to all those interested in family stories and reading about a time that has past. Very different from the way we live so fascinating to experience life as Mary Ann did.

Catherine Cookson had the ability to write for all ages. "The Lord and Mary-Ann" is a book full of delightful childlike intrigues, love and high spirits for those whom she loved.
Mary Ann is up to her usual mischief in the second novel of the Mary Ann series. She is still eight years old, but this novel has a bit less of the "childlike" feel to it than did the first one. In this one, Mary Ann and her ma and da and brother Michael are living on a farm. Her father has quit drinking... for the time being. Mary Ann has developed a bit of a relationship with the owner of the farm, Mr. Lord. She has quite a few "not so companionable" relationships as well, namely with her nemisis, Sarah Flannigan and another young farm girl, Lena. Her friendship with Mr. Lord is the cause of much jealousy to the other two young girls and Mary Ann is constantly fighting with one of them and then repenting to her beloved Father Owen.

There is a few laughs in this one. My poor husband has once again been jarred awake in the middle of night due to my laughing my arse off while reading in bed. I really do need to get him some ear plugs. It is not all laughter and fun tho, as Mary Ann's mother has a former suitor reappear in her life, causing Mike (Mary Ann's da) some distress. Will Mike hit the bottle again? If he does, will he lose his job?

Mary Ann continues appealing to both Father Owen and the "Holy Family" as she calls them, but can they help her this time?

Cute story, but dims when compared to some of Cookson's other works.
