"Seven Dials, London, 1875. Thanks to her hapless father, Nettie Carroll has had to grow up quickly. While Nettie is sewing night and day to keep food on the talbe, her gullible father has trusted the wrong man, again. Left with virtually nothing but the clothes they stand up in, he's convinced that their only hope lies across the English Channel in France. Nettie has little but her dreams left to lose. Even far from home trouble follows them, with their enemies quietly drawing closer. But Nettie has a secret, and it's one that has the power to save them. Can she find the courage to trust in herself and pave the way for a brighter future?"-- Publisher.
