"Flowers with the atmosphere of old Docklands London."Manchester Evening News
When her friend and business partner Edwin Brown dies, it seems like Katherine Carter's own
world has ended. Not only has her closest companion been taken from her, she's also lost
the successful restaurant they build up together, as well as the comfortable home they shared
with her young son. Now all this has been snatched away, for Edwin has left no will, and his
lecherous brother Gerald presumes he's inherited Katherine along with the house.
With little money but full of determination, Katherine escapes Gerald's violent advances and takes
lodgings in Rotherhithe, with her cook's sister, Milly. Despite its poverty, Dockhands London is full
of hope and friendship and, in helping her new neighbors through their difficulties, Katherine finally
begins to tackle her troubled past. But even as she rebuilds her life around the pie-and-mash shop
where she works, a terrible shadow is hanging over the country. And little does anyone know the
horrors 1914 will unleash.
