  • London, 1908.

    For years now, Maggie Wilson has had to bring up her four daughters alone with barely enough money to get by. Local Constable Harry Bradshaw looks out for them as best he can but there isn’t much he can do for Maggie’s small family.

    When the opportunity to take in a lodger arises, Maggie can’t resist the extra income. But there’s something strange about the man Maggie has let into her home… what if he’s more trouble than he’s worth?

    A moving family drama set against the backdrop of one of London’s poorest areas. Perfect for fans of Maggie Ford, Kitty Neale and Katie Flynn.
