THE MOMENT HE MET HER HE KNEW LIFE WAS NEVER GOING TO BE THE SAME AGAIN…
When Jamie Blair, twenty-four, unemployed, and back from the trenches, takes lodgings at Larcom Street in Walworth, he has no idea he is walking into a trap. The house is owned by Henry Mullins – a big, burly, hard drinker who makes life hell for his four stepchildren, all half-starved and frequently hit.
It’s Kitty, seventeen, who Jamie feels most sorry for. She takes the brunt of Mullins’ bad temper, whilst trying to protect her sisters and brother.
When Mullins suddenly dies – in somewhat suspicious circumstances – Kitty realises they could be in trouble. If she isn’t careful the authorities could take the younger children away – split the family up…
Too late Jamie finds himself with a ready-made family and a stubborn and fiery young lady called Kitty determined not to let him go.
