Ten-year-old Jack Larkin has seen more than his fair share of shocking sights, growing up in the notorious Crown Saloon.
Broken hearts and broken bones are just a fact of life in a Gin Palace, but for orphan Dolly, the Crown is her last hope.
After the death of her mother, Dolly ran away from her sleazy stepfather, Arthur, only to find herself living on the streets. When Jack discovers her hiding in the back yard of the Crown, he persuades his mother, Nellie Larkin, to take Dolly in.
But Dolly has a secret - a very valuable secret - and Arthur is determined to get his clutches on her at any cost. And when local hard-man Ezra Morton joins in the hunt, the Larkins may have to risk everything to keep Dolly safe....
The Queen of the Black Country sagas is back with a heart-warming, laugh-out-loud story to remember.
Perfect for fans of Val Wood and Lyn Andrews.

Read like a book for children.
Boring story. Like a child’s Fairy tale story.
Not reflective of the people of the time.

I have really enjoyed this book very well written, and excellently told. I didn’t want it to end
