Summary

A brand-new saga from best-selling author AnneMarie Brear! Perfect for the fans of Anna Jacobs and Dilly Court.

Orphan Victoria Carlton is brought up by her uncle to be a lady and make a good marriage. Yet, she is drawn to help the poor families in the slums, much to her family’s disgust. When her uncle dies suddenly, her cousins blame Victoria, and she is thrown out of the house with nothing. Victoria flees to the poor side of York to start again in a world that is full of perils. To combat the heartache of being without her family, she befriends the destitute women and children in the slums, but such friendships come with the danger of disease and increasing poverty, and the threat of a brutal man could cost her everything. 

Can Victoria find the security she has lost?

An enjoyable listen

This grittier than Georgette Heyer story had me wanting to know the outcome until the end and there were one or two surprises on the way. To say more would spoil it for others. I had one or two issues with the narrator's pronunciation of certain words. And surely the family O'Shea would be pronounced O-Shay and not O'Shee-ar. But I stand to be corrected by Irish listeners.
