A tale of one girl’s brave escape from a world of poverty in her search for true love, from the much loved author Nancy Carson.

Poppy Silk is the daughter of a railroad worker in the Midlands – a world of violence and poverty. But despite being penniless and unschooled, Poppy is determined to find a life that does not involve cleaning up after a husband she doesn’t love.

Robert Crawford, a handsome engineer she encounters one day, is like no one she’s ever met. As he teaches her to read, feelings blossom. But Robert is promised to another, and Poppy finds herself with a heart-breaking decision to make.

Is true love worth waiting for?

A compelling tale of one girl's brave escape from a world of poverty in her search for true love. Is true love worth risking everything for? Sixteen-year-old Poppy Silk is one of the navvy community - a group of poor, rough-living men who work the railways and take their families wherever the tracks lead. When Poppy is left fatherless, her world becomes fraught with danger, men vying to claim her as their own. Her one ray of hope is Robert, a young engineer, who she meets one day by the tracks. But his wealthy family have different plans for him. Can Poppy ever hope to win his heart? And would she give up her whole way of life for him?

Poppy's Dilemma had me glued to it right to the last page.' Reader review 'Her writing is well researched, tastefully portrayed, and a good pace. Be warned though, every page is a page turner, so you may find it difficult to put down!' Reader review 'A great book to escape into.' Reader review 'What a charming, fabulous read! Full of evocative details about the period and setting, and with a really admirable heroine. It sweeps you away and doesn't let go.'
