A Brighter Tomorrow : An engrossing Victorian family saga Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


She has the chance for a new life, but will she take it?When their mother dies of pneumonia, Ellie and her younger sister Dora are left alone in the world.

Their hard-drinking, womanising father has abandoned them, and they cannot afford the rent on their East End tenement alone.

Ellie is proud but she cannot turn down an offer of help from Doctor Lowe, a kindly man who sees Ellie as the replacement for his own recently deceased daughter. Though Doctor Lowe's motives are misguided, his kindness offers Ellie and Dora an opportunity to escape the poverty of their background and make something of themselves.

But will Ellie risk her chance at a new life for revenge on her father?

An enthralling Victorian saga of family and female independence, perfect for fans of Maggie Hope and Val Wood.
