Summary

When Cara Flowers' beloved grandmother dies she leaves not only an enormous fortune, but also a huge responsibility - to find their estranged family. Cara's quest leads her to the doors of the imposing Bilston workhouse.

Shocked by the appalling conditions, Cara vows to find a way to close the workhouse and rescue its residents. Fraught by countless hurdles, her mission becomes personal; what has her missing mother got to do with the looming workhouse?

Best audiobook for a long while

Gripping story & characters, got really involved. Can’t wait to read more from this author.
I always read this type of story about poor people fighting injustice and their experiences especially in wartime. This one stood out from the others in this genre.
