Sean O'Donnell, small-time villain and loyal family man, walked out on his family 19 years ago and hasn't been heard of since.
Now his daughter Iris has returned to the East End in the hope of finding out what happened. But it isn't going to be easy. Everyone close to Iris, including her mother, seems intent on keeping the truth hidden.
With the rest of her life in a mess, Iris struggles to make sense of her murky family history. But a chance meeting with the mysterious Guy Wilder changes everything. Son of the local criminal matriarch, Guy has plenty of problems of his own but there's something about Iris that makes him more than willing to help her search for the truth.

great story was a little slow on the build up but i guess there was s lot of twists and turns to set thr plot up ....but i can safely say iy went along nicely with a twisted end anyway thoroughly enjoyed it ...great piece of escapism ...a book not just for women but men 2

No idea, I've never read it in print
there was one, and it was believable and interesting.
Scenes, all of the one describing their way of life, their Caravan.
It's true what they say about travelers!
Doubtful.....just didn't like the slowness of the story.
I didn't like the Narrator and the story was too slow moving for me.
She had a whiney voice!
I didn't finish the book so it would not be fair to make a suggestion
I was very disappointed
