Publisher's Summary

It's 1935, and Maggie Ross loves her life among the stallholders in Kelvin Market, where her husband, Tony, has a bric-a-brac stall and where she lives, with her young family, above Mr. Goldman's tailoring shop. But when, one fine spring day, her husband disappears into thin air, her world collapses.

The last anyone saw of Tony was at Rotherhithe station, where Mr. Goldman glimpsed him boarding a train, though Maggie can only guess at her husband's destination or his reason for leaving so suddenly when she's got a baby on the way. What she does begin to learn is who her real friends are as she struggles to bring her children up alone. There's outspoken, golden-hearted Winnie, and cheeky Eve, whom she's known since girlhood. And then there's Inspector Matthews, the policeman sent to investigate her husband's disappearance, to whom Maggie is increasingly drawn.

    "Potentially Good"

    This is a story that had the potential to be more powerful than it wound up to be. Redundancy became nothing but page fillers, and added nothing to the story. However, the premise was good although the story wound up a little flat.

    "Outstanding Book"

    I really loved this book. It is set in the 1930s in London, and the characters are all ordinary people -- so different from "Regency" novels. The characters are all very likeable and very real, and the story is compelling and makes you want to keep reading until you find out how it comes out.
