The brand-new compelling novel from Sunday Times best seller Dilly Court.
Lottie Lane is all alone in the world. As a chambermaid at one of London's busiest inns, condemned to a life of drudgery and at the mercy of a vicious landlady, Lottie is too worn out to even dream of a better life.
Until one night an injured soldier is brought to The Swan. Lottie nurses him back from the dead, and suddenly everything changes. She finds herself following the drum of the soldiers all the way from the docks of Chatham to the darkness and despair of a far-flung battlefield.
When tragedy strikes, Lottie is alone once more and thrown back into the jaws of London's streets. With the threat of destitution nipping at her heels, Lottie is in dire need of a miracle....

Superb.My best purchase ever

love it. I am totally in awe of Dilly Court as an author, this is my third book of hers and I am already looking for he next. Annie Aldington is the best narrator I have listened to. she is very talented and complements the story and truly brings the characters to life.
