Josephine Cox was born in Blackburn, Lancashire in 1941. She is a well- known author whose books have dominated the writing industry in the UK. She has won the Superwoman for Great Britain Award. She grew up in a family of ten siblings in a homestead which was a mill of cotton. At the age of sixteen years she got married to her spouse, Ken and got two sons. She made up her mind to go to college since the kids had started to attend kindergarten. She was successfully admitted at the Cambridge University. She got involved in the teaching career and later on she started the journey for writing and publishing her first book. She then decided to leave the teaching career so as to focus on writing. Generally, her writings are about life experiences that are common to many people. She is able to create a blend of stories which involve historical scenes and the newest tales.

One of the interesting novels that Josephine Cox has written is The Beachcomber. It mainly revolves around themes of misfortune and victory. The book describes how two individuals who happen to be lonely decide to travel to West Bay during summer so as to stay at the seaside of a certain village. They coincidentally want to find tranquility and start a new life. They are also similar in that they are all foreigners who have travelled to West Bay but with distinguished backgrounds. One of them is Tom Arnold who left his belongings and a high-wage occupation. He has the sorrow of losing his family the previous year. His family perished in a road accident whereby he is the only one who survived. Tom believes that it was a planned murder and the driver whom he suspects went at large and he has never seen him. It happened that when they were driving, the suspect started pushing their vehicle from behind resulting it to fall against the rim of the cliff. The crime investigators had tried their best to track down the suspect but they had not been successful. This sorrowful scene is what makes Tom miserable. He hopes that by flying to London, he will find peace to overcome the emotions.

The other individual is Kathy Wilson. She has encountered a lot of pain and loneliness and yet she is still optimistic about life. With her spouse having divorced her, she tries to overcome the pain by searching comfort from other men. This is what takes place when she comes across Tom in West Bay. In addition to that pain she is also not in good terms with the cruel mother and brutal sister whom she hates so much. Her father had earlier on perished. Kathy is also in a journey to discover more about her father. She finds out that her father had bequeathed her a certain house. This is the house that her dad used to live together with the woman whom he used to frequently flirt with. When she inherits the house she decides to escape to Dorset. She is also curious as to why her dad used to be happier when he was in West Bay compared to when he was at home. This is one of the reasons why she travels to West Bay hoping that she would be happy the same way like her dad. When Tom and Kathy come across each other, the strong tension between them starts fading slowly. They become overwhelmed with one another. A point reaches when they declare their love for one another. While they think they have finally gotten the peace, unfortunately, it is destructed by a jealous person in West Bay. This person happens to be a killer who intends to hurt them.

Another remarkable book from Josephine Cox is The Journey. The book is about interesting events that revolve around two families, the Lucy Baker’s and the Davidson’s. It is an inspiring and emotional story that portrays the theme of love, bravery and forfeiture that is rarely seen in mankind. There are three foreigners who have coincidentally been chased away from their homes. One of them is Lucy who was chased due to having an unwanted pregnancy .Edward Trent, an experienced womanizer is the man responsible for the pregnancy. She finds refuge in her friend’s residence, Bridget where she bores a child by the name Jamie. In this residence a business is carried out which involves girls entertaining visitors. It is in this process that Edward meets Lucy again when he comes as a visitor. She is convinced with Edward’s idea of them reuniting and moving together with their son, Jamie. However, one day when Lucy falls down unconsciously, Edward takes advantage of the situation and makes off with her. She is recued by Burner Davidson, a neighboring farmer. The Davidson’s family takes care of Lucy and Jamie. When Davidson’s employer relocates him to America, the family has to vacate, leaving Lucy alone.
