Summary

Charity Stratton's bleak childhood is changed forever when both her parents are killed in a fire. Separated by the authorities from her younger brothers and sister, Charity is sent out to work as a skivvy in a boys' boarding school. Her loneliness and misery are eased when she falls deeply in love with the dashing but fickle sixth-former Hugh Mainwaring, but when she discovers she is pregnant with Hugh's baby, she soon realises just how alone she really is. Determined to be reunited with her siblings and to make something of herself, Charity runs away to 1960s London and begins to forge a new life.

A very good read

Although I really enjoyed reading this title because of it's wonderfull narration and moving storyline, I was a bit shocked by some very graphic descriptions in this book. I felt there didn't need to be so much lengthy graphic scenes and that this spoiled the read a bit for me. However the general story was overall moving and compelling.

So exciting

If you want a book with loads of variety, action and interest with love thrown in, and just the right amount of eroticism thrown in this book will meet your criteria.

It's an Ok book

I've read other Lesley Pearse titles and bought this same on the assumtion that they would be just as exciting. If it wasn't for the Narrator I would have left this book half way. The situations didn't add up. That is what I found most unbecoming. LP is a lovely author, but this is not one of her best books.
