Publisher's Summary

When her friend and business partner Edwin Brown dies, it seems like Katherine Carter's own world has ended. Not only has her closest companion been taken from her, she's also lost the successful restaurant they built up together, as well as the comfortable home they shared with her young son. Now all this has been snatched away, for Edwin has left no will, and his lecherous brother Gerald presumes he's inherited Katherine along with the house.

With little money but full of determination, Katherine escapes Gerald's violent advances and takes lodgings in Rotherhithe, with her cook's sister, Milly. Despite its poverty, Dockhands London is full of hope and friendship and, in helping her new neighbors through their difficulties, Katherine finally begins to tackle her troubled past. But even as she rebuilds her life around the pie-and-mash shop where she works, a terrible shadow is hanging over the country. And little does anyone know the horrors 1914 will unleash.

    "Not Bad....Not Great"

    Not a bad read, just a bit predictable and not unlike some other books I have read or listened to about a strong willed woman being a hero in times when women had no rights. The reader was excellent, but then again I am a sucker for accents.
