Evidence

"amongst all else she [Causley"s mother] found a little time for reading from a two-penny library: novels by the Cornish writers Silas and Joseph Hocking (""Rosemary Carew"", by the latter, was a tremendous favourite) and ""Stella Dallas"" by the American Olive Higgins Prouty. She also had a few books of her own: ""The Following of the Star"" by Florence L. Barclay, ""The Sorrows of Satan"" by Marie Corelli, and the like. I tried them all, and enjoyed most: especially ""Stella Dallas"", which exercised a peculiar fascination over me. I re-read it constantly and with such devotion that she forbade me ever to read it again. I couldn"t think why; and not until years later did it occur to me that the central character was a prostitute".
