The engrossing new saga set in turn-of-the-twentieth-century London by the author of A Mother's Promise.

Eighteen-year-old Irene Angel lives with her parents in a tiny room above the shop where her crippled mother ekes out a living selling pickles and sauces, whilst her charming but feckless father Billy gambles away what little money they do manage to earn. And it is all Irene can do to keep the family together.

Reviews

A must-read for lovers of Dilly Court's books - she describes what's happening so vividly you can feel and smell what she writes and draws you into the everyday life of her characters
