Description

London, 1868. As the Christmas season begins, Claudine Burroughs feels little joy in its endless social calls and extravagant events. Working at a clinic for desperate women has opened her eyes to a different world. Then her two worlds collide. A prostitute smuggled into a grandiose Christmas party is found brutally beaten. Poet Dai Tregarron stands accused. But Dai insists he was trying to protect her from the violence of three young men. Claudine believes him, but with society closing ranks against him, how can she prove his innocence without risking everything?

The tale is redolent with Victorian atmosphere, from the hypocritical snobbishness to the rigid social conventions of the time

Préface
A festive tale of courage, faith, and the importance of fighting for the truth, from the master storyteller of Victorian crime fiction
