Synopsis: An intelligent, slum-dwelling teenage girl takes drastic measures to survive when her father throws her out of her home, in this spellbinding historical saga

Poplar, London, 1920. Fourteen-year-old Victoria Keats is horrified when her father demands that she go to work for wealthy Mr Preston ? everyone knows why he takes young girls into his house. But her violent father, who?s never let her forget she?s not the son he wanted, won?t listen to her concerns ? and when she stands up for herself, he throws her out of their dingy little house in the slums.

Intelligent, book-loving Vicki vows to make her father regret this day; but she is all alone in the world. Despite her courage and quick wits, it seems likely she will starve ? until two men, both complete strangers, provide her with no-strings-attached help.

As Vicki?s life improves beyond all recognition, she can?t help but fixate on the mystery of these two good Samaritans: who were they? And why did they help her? She determines to find the men and thank them, but tracking them down may be harder ? and more life-changing ? than she thinks . . .
