Publisher's Summary

The new novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author.

As the wind whipped around her, dragging strands of hair from beneath her bonnet and tugging at her skirt, Nettie left behind the only home she’d ever known.

London, 1875. Taking one last look around her little room in Covent Garden, Nettie Carroll couldn’t believe she wouldn’t even be able to say good-bye to her friends. Her father had trusted the wrong man, and now they would have to go on the run. Once again.

Fabulous dynamic duo Dilly Court & Annie Aldington

I have loved all Dilly Courts books and was really looking forward to her latest release; it didn’t fail to please and is another wonderful cosy read with a little continental flavour. The brilliant Annie Aldington provides an excellent narration and a fluent delivery as she moves wonderfully between the characters. In typical Dilly Court style the book begins in London in the year 1875, the heroine Nettie Collins and her father Robert, a slightly eccentric artist are living hand to mouth in Covent Garden. Rather naïvely Robert was duped into painting what he believed to be legitimate copies of the old masters. Duke, the villain of the story then sold the paintings as original masterpieces, pocketing large sums of money and paying Robert a pittance. Once the police become involved Nettie and her father are forced to flee and leave abruptly without Nettie having a chance to say her farewells. As they begin their journey to a new life Nettie is surprised when they are joined by Byron one of her friends, Byron is clearly sweet on Nettie but she seems to be unaware of his feelings. Quite quickly we are introduced to multiple characters but Dilly Court provides a great introduction to all of them, so there is no confusion in trying to work out who is who. As the characters travel through their various journeys across several countries there are multiple potential love interests. These are intertwined amongst an intriguing plot to save the virtue of one of the female characters from the clutches of the villain and prove the integrity of Nettie's father. In typical Dilly style this is an uncomplicated heartening read; it is story of never giving up hope, true friendship and determination, overcoming adversity and very much about caring for others. It's an easy read and had an interesting twist at the end. I loved it and would love to see a sequel and find out what happened to all the characters.

Wonderful

Another lovely story by DIlly Court and read brilliantly by Annie Aldington as usual. I can certainly recommend this story which ended happily for Netty and her father, also not forgetting Constance and the little orphan girl.
