The heartwarming and nostalgic new novel from the Sunday Times top ten best-selling author of The Beggar Maid.
Motherless since she was five, Mirabel Cutler was raised by her father to be a lady. But when he dies suddenly, Mirabel finds herself cast out on the street by her ruthless stepmother.
She is taken to a place of refuge by charismatic sea captain Jack Starke. But the safe haven turns out to be a house of ill repute. Here she becomes a parlour maid and catches the eye of an elderly retired army officer, Hubert Kettle.
Mirabel has fallen in love with Jack Starke, but when she hears that his ship has foundered and all were lost, she has little choice but to accept Hubert's offer of a home and marriage. Although desperately unhappy, Mirabel is determined to make the best of her life.
Until she receives unexpected news, and her life is thrown into turmoil once more.

If you love Dilly Court you probably love this
When she married Hubert and when he died just as he got to where he wanted to go all his life.
I would recommend any of Dilly Courts books because they are very good. Also I prefer stories to be on land, I don't know why I just do.
I did not like the narrators voice and to many people to distinguish and they mostly sounded the same.
yes and no. yes because she is a very good writer and no because the same voice over and over has made me go off them and that is a great shame because I used to love buying them.
Change the narrator please.
