An Almond for a Parrot : The Gripping and Decadent Historical Page Turner for 2017 Paperback

Description

'shades of Sarah Waters...irresistible' - The Guardian 'I would like to make myself the heroine of this story - an innocent victim led astray.

But alas sir, I would be lying...' London, 1756: In Newgate prison, Tully Truegood awaits trial.

Her fate hanging in the balance, she tells her life-story.

It's a tale that takes her from skivvy in the back streets of London, to conjuror's assistant, to celebrated courtesan at her stepmother's Fairy House, the notorious house of ill-repute where decadent excess is a must...Tully was once the talk of the town.

Now, with the best seats at Newgate already sold in anticipation of her execution, her only chance of survival is to get her story to the one person who can help her avoid the gallows.

She is Tully Truegood. Orphan, whore, magician's apprentice. Murderer? A compelling mix of bawdy romp and magical realism.' -Sarra Manning, Red magazine
