    East-End London, 1858: Katherine Martin has just arrived back in london after spendind three years in India. But the city is far crueller than she remembers. Kate is determined to help the poor even if it means defying her parents. She rents a building and opens up a soup kitchen where she first comes across Harry Trader and his gang. Kate's lady's maid becomes a good companion and stays by her side through good and bad. Dilly Court is a fantastic storyteller who knows how to pull you in from the East-End London, 1858: Katherine Martin has just arrived back in london after spendind three years in India.

Dilly Court is a fantastic storyteller who knows how to pull you in from the beginning and hold your attention until the end.There's lots of lovely characters and some nasty rogues as well. There's lots happening in this story but it's easy to follow. I have read and enjoyed all of Dilly Court's books. I would like to thank #NetGalley, @HarperCollinsUK #HarperFiction and the author #DillyCourt for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks to Netgalley for a copy for an unbiased review. Kate comes back from her luxurious life in Delhi India with her mother and father, when she arrives back in London she is shocked by the amount of poverty that seems to be everywhere.

Kate comes back from her luxurious life in Delhi India with her mother and father, when she arrives back in London she is shocked by the amount of poverty that seems to be everywhere. Kate knows she has had a privileged childhood and decides she would like to help the less fortunate, but will her mother and father agree?? Her father is a bossy overbearing man who aspirations to become a high court judge. Kates mother hasn't really been involved in Kates live as she spends more time dining out or entertaining for her husbands career. Kate endeavour's to start a soup kitchen with her own money to help the poorer families, but this may not fit with other people opinions and she ruffles peoples feather when she only wants to help. This is a great story with plenty of twists and turns, a fantastic myriad of characters from all walks of life that keep you wanting to turn each page until the end. Highly recommend this book from start to finish!!!!

The story soon draws you in and you are rooting for all the characters. As with all Dilly Court books you are guaranteed an excellent read, that will keep your attention throughout. I really enjoyed reading this book, a real escapism story and a 5☆ read.

    I always really enjoy Dilly Court's book. I must admit there were one or two parts that I felt were a bit far fetched but didn't spoil my enjoyment at all. I am very much looking forward to her new series. I always really enjoy Dilly Court's book.

    Another masterpiece by Dilly Court. She brings disparate people together and binds them into an unrelated family. Some really good characters and with so much going on the story remains absorbing right to the end. A real feel good story and I look forward to the next one.
