This is a wonderful East End of London saga written by a good author. Loved this book.

Back Cover Blurb:
Gas lights and horse drawn buses, gin-soaked night clubs and fluttering lace curtains: the world of Autumn Alley.
Meet Maud, the formidable Irish-American suffragette; sulky Patricia, whose unhappy childhood leads her to a dangerous love affair; vivacious, flame-haired Colleen; Mary, who struggles to bring up children beside her wayward husband - and Arfer, whose quick mind lifts him out from the world of poverty in London's East End.… (més)

Have read a couple of books by this author before and really enjoyed them but this one was not up to her usual standard.

Back Cover Blurb:
This book is made up of three stories - its a fast read not needing a lot of brain power.
Kate of Clyve Shore:
Living in poverty in the Kentish marshes, young Kate dreams of a life of abundance and riches in the castle that towers over her village. So when the beautiful Lady Evelyn descends, requesting that Kate be her personal maidservant at the castle, it looks like the first stage of a dream come true. But then there are blackhearted men to contend with, evil in thought and deed, and they have a sophistication well beyond that of anyone Kate has encountered before, and when her one true love, Tom the fisherman, returns from sailing the seven seas, it is to a very different Kate from the one he left behind....
Two Swallows:
A sailor and his childhood friend fall out over the same desirable woman - with fatal consequences....
The Long Spoons:
The unearthly Theodora returns to the hamlet that had executed her as a witch in a previous lifetime to wreak revenge and havoc in a close-knit community....
