Publisher's Summary

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…

Started out good - petered out

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.
