Book Description HarperCollins. Paperback. Book Condition: New. UNUSED, VERY GOOD, NOT EX-LIBRARY, 2 novels in one paperback edition FICTION, 234 pages. From the bestselling author of All the Sweet Promises and Daisychain Summer come two evocative and page-turning novels of nineteenth-century Britain. THE HOUSE IN ABERCROMBY SQUARE Patrick Norris is a young doctor with the world at his feet. Betrothed to Arabella Harrington, the daughter of an eminent Harley Street physician, his career and place in society are assured. But before Patrick takes up the reins to his future, he returns to his Liverpool roots. When he finds the poor of the alleys and mean backstreets still living in squalor, and in the grasp of a fatal cholera epidemic, Patrick is faced with the biggest challenge of his life: does he stay on in The Haven the once grand and splendid house where the sick find health or die in dignity or return to the opulent London life he and Arabella live? MISTRESS OF LUKES FOLLY Luke Holroyd has risen from the gutter and is now a rich and successful mill-owner. Whilst hes earned the grudging respect of his workers, hes done little to comfort their day-to-day stricken lives. Nor does Luke hold out much hope for his wayward son, David. For David has fallen head over heels in love with Sarah Makin. Beautiful and spirited, theres a turbulence about her that rouses him. But the gulf between them is wide and deep, for Sarah is an employee of his father. Is she a mill-girl with ideas above her station, wishing to discard her clog-irons for finer and grander things, or will she prove her worth in the face of adversity? Portraying the divide between the haves and have-nots, between a society either grovelling in the gutter or parading in wealth, Elizabeth Elgins two stories fire the imagination and satisfy the soul. book.
