Summary

The brand-new unforgettable romance saga from the number one best-selling author.

London was her home. It seemed impossible that she had grown up in the city without ever noticing the huge differences between those who had money and those who had next to nothing.  

East-End London, 1858.

In London's twisting streets, it's hard to tell friend from foe. And for Katherine Martin, arriving back in London after years away, the city is far crueller than she remembers. Her eyes opened to the plight of London's poor, Kate is determined to do what she can to help - even if it means defying her parents. 

In secret, she opens a soup kitchen. But there is a world of criminals within London's poorest alleys. Catching the notice of Harry Trader and his gang, Kate is out of her depth. Until she begins to discover that her true enemies might not be who she thought....

This book transported me to a different time, it gave me a break from my day and couldn't stop listening. Took me a few days to listen to but each time left me feeling light and excited for the next time I'd get chance to pick it up!!

Excellent story but narration not so good

This is one instance where I wish I’d read the book rather than listen to it. I found the narration quite irritating, with how her intonation was always the same, irrespective of the meaning!
