Summary

In the sixties, Briony Cavanagh ran a string of the most notorious brothels in London. Only Briony knew what went on behind those doors, and she never opened her mouth - unless she stood to benefit. Only Briony knew the painful road she'd travelled to get there. From an impoverished childhood that ended with shocking betrayal, she was determined to be mistress of her own fate. But along with success came risk and danger. And the Goodnight Lady had her own secret place that was always shadowed by loss.

Hooked from the very beginning

I wasn't sure what to expect, so I was pleasantly surprised, I was hooked from the very beginning. Martina Cole's description of The interracial relationship was gripping and emotional. I would say this is one of her best, including the exceptional narrating, you won't be able to stop listening.

I adored this book!

I bought this booked because it was recommended to me by my girlfriend. I've never read Martina Cole, I read more in fantasy and sci fi, but I have to say this book has made me a fan of the author. The story is well written, detailed and extremely absorbing. I like that the story begins with the protagonist as a young girl and sees her life through to her elderly years. All the characters are likeable (or not where required) but you find yourself in a world of good people doing bad things and bad people doing good things just to survive in the harsh reality of London. Excellent read, highly recommended.
