Summary

Handsome Frank Rossi took Matty Gilbie away from her working class roots in East London, promising her fame and fortune. As his wife, she would be half of a power couple. But the Wall Street Crash puts paid to all that, and as Frank becomes more violent, Matty flees in the dead of night. Once home in Bermondsey, she goes into hiding, but Frank is on the move, determined to find her and get her back.

Another great Mary Gibson story

Have read the previous Mary Gibson books so def had to get this, esp as Anne Dover narrating is superb - and I warmed to the familiar characters and liked the depth of the storyline - there were some twists interspersed throughout & I learnt alot about the history and health side of London in the 30's. The setting was different to some books of Mary's and I liked the authenticity of it all. It rang true both in stories and characterisation.
It was a change from a war time setting but still had the warmth of people pulling together. 5 stars

Don't waste a credit

After listening to a custard Tarts by the same author I was really looking forward to this book but dear oh dear I'm unable to finish it. I couldn't warm at all to the main characters Mattie and Tom for which I blame the narrator giving them the voices of old people. The story line is weak and far fetched . I won't be having another book by Mary Gibson and shall return this one
