Two Strangers: An Historical Saga Set in 1920s London Hardback


An intelligent, slum-dwelling teenage girl takes drastic measures to survive when her father throws her out of her home, in this spellbinding historical saga Poplar, London, 1920.

Fourteen-year-old Victoria Keats is horrified when her father demands that she go to work for wealthy Mr Preston - everyone knows why he takes young girls into his house.

But her violent father, who's never let her forget she's not the son he wanted, won't listen to her concerns - and when she stands up for herself, he throws her out of their dingy little house in the slums.

Intelligent, book-loving Vicki vows to make her father regret this day; but she is all alone in the world.

Despite her courage and quick wits, it seems likely she will starve - until two men, both complete strangers, provide her with no-strings-attached help.

As Vicki's life improves beyond all recognition, she can't help but fixate on the mystery of these two good Samaritans: who were they? And why did they help her? She determines to find the men and thank them, but tracking them down may be harder - and more life-changing - than she thinks...
