'Campbell Road was home to the most notorious criminals: thieves, prostitutes, fraudsters - every sort of rogue and vagabond drifted through this slum.'

Life was tough ... but so were they

Alice Keiver is a sensitive girl, growing up in one of the roughest parts of North London. As the daughter of an alcoholic mother, and niece of an abusive uncle, she dreams that one day she and her baby sister will escape their rotten surroundings.

Alice's father, Jack Keiver, works day and night to provide for his family. But his hopes for a better life are dashed each time he returns home to find the money-jar raided and his feisty wife Tilly collapsed drunk in the corner.

In the room below, Alice's downtrodden Aunt Fran spends most of her days nursing the injuries inflicted on her by her cruel husband Jimmy - but this time he's pushed the family too far and they're not going to let him get away with it.

Revenge is going to be sweet.

This book was excellent, I didn't want it to end. Reading it made me feel like I was living in the era the book was set in.
By Amanda Bicknell

What a wonderful read...having been born near this area l could see the places and people as described, could not wait to read a few more chapters each night but was so sad when l finished it.
By LondonSue

loved this book the sort you pickup and can't put back down, the setting and characters really come to life, it's as if you can see it and breath it. Wonderful.
