9780099538844: Cinderella Sister

Lily Larkin is the youngest of six and the least important member of her talented, argumentative, temperamental family. With their father dead and their mother a stranger to them, she must stay at home and keep house whilst her elder siblings go out to work. As she goes about her daily chores, and minds her ailing grandfather, her head is full of dreams. And she longs for the day she can have a life of her own.

When a fire threatens to destroy the nearby docks, Lily's act of kindness towards a handsome foreigner has disastrous consequences for the whole family. For shortly afterwards they are thrown out of the only home they have ever known and have no choice but to move into two mean rooms above the fire station where Lily's brothers work. Here the family struggles to make ends meet. But just when things might be looking up for them all, Lily makes a terrible error of judgement by going against her eldest brother's wishes. In anger he turns her from the door. Forced onto the streets, Lily wonders if she'll ever see her family again.

Book Description:

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

From the Back Cover:

Lily sighed and arched her aching back. She hated Mondays. If she ruled the country she would make it illegal for women to spend the whole day slaving over a copper filled with boiling water and strong-smelling lye soap. She would put a stop to the drudgery of mangling, rinsing and then mangling again before the clean garments could be hung out to dry. She had been slaving away since dawn. Having been born the youngest she was expected to stay at home all day and help to keep house. It had been many years since the family could afford a domestic to do the mundane chores, and these had gradually been heaped upon on Lily's slender shoulders. Why, she wondered, was life so unfair?
