Kitty has a comfortable life as a country milkmaid. She is well looked after by the family who live up at the great house, and she enjoys being courted by Will Villiers, the handsome river man.

Then, one day, Will vanishes. Kitty is heartbroken, and when she is sent to London on an errand, she is determined to track down Will. But, alone and vulnerable in the vast city, Kitty’s fate is snatched out of her hands and she is plunged into a dizzying spiral of despair….

 

My Thoughts:

I don’t normally read historical fiction but I was drawn to the cover and the blurb on the back just as something different from my normal reads. I managed to read this book in a day, the chapters were quite short and the writing large so took no time at all. This book gave me a frightening account of what an unforgiving place the 19th century London was. I found it very interesting historically and enjoyed the last couple of pages where there are some historical notes which I found fascinating. A good little read when you want something a little bit different.
