The first novel in Jessica Stirling's enthralling saga series is
set in 1930s England, where an East End girl with ideas of her own
makes a surprising journey from the back streets of Shadwell to the
salons of Mayfair. Susan Hooper is private secretary to bestselling
author, Vivian Proudfoot. Well-spoken and well-read, she soon
learns how to hold her own with London's literary sophisticates.
But the attentions of Mercer Hughes, a handsome agent with a
notorious reputation and a shady past, are more than a docker's
daughter can cope with and she finds herself falling reluctantly in
love. She is soon cut off from her father and at loggerheads with
her idealistic brother Ronnie and his gadabout wife Breda. Even her
old friend, newspaperman Danny Cahill, is shocked at the circles in
which Susan finds herself where pimps and gangsters rub shoulders
with wealthy fascist sympathisers in support of the war in Spain.
As the threat of world war grows Susan is torn between loyalty to
her family and a lover who will not let her go. But when the time
comes to choose she finds a solution that surprises everyone.
Susan's story continues in The Wayward Wife.
