From the slums of Victorian London to a New World ...
Matilda Jennings was a poor flower girl in Covent Garden until the day she saved the life of a minister's daughter called Tabitha. Drawn into the bosom of little Tabitha's family, she little realises it will soon mean uprooting her own life.
For Matilda leaves Victorian London's slums and heads first for the darkest corners of New York, then beyond into the plains of the Wild West and San Francisco's gold rush. With only her beauty, intelligence and the strong will she forged on London's streets to guide her, Matilda must create a new life for herself and Tabitha. Between the sweat and tears, heartbreak and passion, she encounters Captain James Russell, a man in whom she might find true love. A love that must withstand separation, war and the birth pangs of a new nation. But through it all, Matilda knows she must never look back . . .

I was very touched by some of the readers reviews about Never Look Back and felt I had to thank all those who took the trouble to write them. A writer spends a great deal of time in 'solitary' its the nature of the business, but when my readers opinions mirror what I was feeling while I was writing it, I know I have suceeded in what I set out to do. I often look at the amazon reviews when I'm feeling glum or worst still when I think I'm losing the plot. But then your voices come to me, and its like being given a hug. And I go back to what I'm working on with new heart.
So please don't stop telling me what you think. Good or bad, it's my life blood. x x x
