- DescriptionAn intelligent, slum-dwelling teenage girl takes drastic measures to survive when her father throws her out of her home, in this spellbinding historical saga Poplar, London, 1920. Fourteen-year-old Victoria Keats is horrified when her father demands that she go to work for wealthy Mr Preston - everyone kws why he takes young girls into his house. But her violent father, who's never let her forget she's t the son he wanted, won't listen to her concerns - and when she stands up for herself, he throws her out of their dingy little house in the slums. Intelligent, book-loving Vicki vows to make her father regret this day; but she is all alone in the world. Despite her courage and quick wits, it seems likely she will starve - until two men, both complete strangers, provide her with -strings-attached help. As Vicki's life improves beyond all recognition, she can't help but fixate on the mystery of these two good Samaritans: who were they? And why did they help her? She determines to find the men and thank them, but tracking them down may be harder - and more life-changing - than she thinks ...
