Slammerkin, Hardback Book

Description

'Strangers might remember a trip to see a girl hang, but who would spare a thought for the whos and hows and whys?'At thirteen, Mary, the daughter of a poor seamstress, longs for fine clothes as her neighbours hunger for food and warmth.

For the love of a gorgeous red ribbon she finds herself seduced into a life on the cold, dangerous streets of late 1700s London.

Her saviour is Doll, a gaudy young woman who takes her under her wing.

But Mary soon discovers that she can't escape her past and that people like her pay must pay dearly for yearnings not fitting to their class . . .
