Nobody's Girl, Paperback / softback Book

Nobody's Girl Paperback / softback


Abandoned and alone, you'll do anything to survive... A gritty saga from the bestselling author Kitty Neale. Abandoned on the cold stone steps of an orphanage, only a few hours old and clutching the object which was to give her name, Pearl Button had a hard start to life. Now 16 years old, she's finally managed to escape the cruel confines of the orphanage, and enter the real world.

Finding work at a nearby cafe, Pearl is thrilled to start earning her own money, even if she must contend with sharp-tongued Dolly Dolby. But soon she becomes tangled up in the murky South London underworld in which Dolly's son - the cruel but handsome Kevin - operates.

By chance, she sees something she shouldn't, something dangerous, and her life is thrown into jeopardy.

Can gentle giant Derek Lewis protect vulnerable Pearl from Kevin - and her own heart? Meanwhile, a local boy is snatched, terrifying this close-knit community, and at the orphanage where Pearl lived out her wretched childhood, the past is coming back to haunt its owner - and the secret she has promised to guard for so many years...
