Raised in the slums in 1850s London, Celia Laws is a rarity, an educated young woman whose creative skills have attracted notice. But with family to care for, circumstances have driven her to pickpocketing. In Celia's harsh world, it's a small step from picking pockets to prostitution. When a young man offers her a fortune to spend a week with him, she takes the money and runs. But Celia's conscience can't allow her to forget the money she stole, and she is soon brought face-to-face with her past…

Which came first... the books or the glasses?
The narrator did an excellent job. She helped keep the story going even when it started to get old. The story started good but about 2/3 of the way through it lost steam. I think the author should have ended it way before she did. I don't know why she dragged it out as long as she did. I was just waiting for it to be over. If I had never listened to it, it would have been no great loss in my life. LOL.
