Kate Ellis learnt the hard way that falling in love with the wrong man could be your undoing. It was nine years ago that she fell for the charms of Freddie Ellis, only to discover his criminal ways. With her husband in prison, Kate has fought hard to give her two children everything they could need. But now Freddie is back and threatens to destroy everything she has worked for.

Captain Jonathan Quinn has resigned from the army after the needless death of too many of his men. But when his father disowns him and his fiancée breaks their engagement, Jonathan finds himself in desperate need of work. Accepting a friend's proposal of acting as headmaster at a local school, Jonathan is determined to leave the army behind and turn his life around.

When Kate and Jonathan's paths cross, the attraction is instant. But with Kate still a married woman, they know it can never be. As Kate grows more distant, Jonathan finds solace in the arms of another woman, and Kate is left to wonder if she will ever find true love again...

More About the Author

I was born into a large, East End family and grew up in the overcrowded streets clustered around the Tower of London. I still live in East London, just five miles from where I was born. I feel that it is that my background that gives my historical East London stories their distinctive authenticity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eastend at it's best. 13 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback
I've read a couple of Jean Fullerton's books now and I really do like the style in which she writes. I love the East end of london references and all the detailed descriptions of the times and areas.

The Author writes a strong leading ladies and always an attractive man, but there is never a simple romance. Kate is no exception to the rule in this book. The struggles that the families face seem totally real to the times they are set in and therefore makes the book seem more real. Say son the back of the book, a real page turner of which I have to agree!

Without hesitation I would read other works by this Author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to put down ! 12 July 2012
By Linda
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a fan of Jean Fullerton's books, I have to confess. I've read all of them, some twice, and always with the feeling that I can't put them down. Hold on to Hope is another winner. A great story and amazing characters who feel real and three dimentional. Somehow this writer slips in historical detail so you don't notice it -you are transported back in time and left cheering for her protagonist. What an inspiration !

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! 3 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was just as engrossed in this novel as I was with the author's previous three! I felt like I was in the story and did not want to put it down. Excellent characters and story lines with great scene setting and atmosphere. You will love this if you are a fan of period romance but I would definitely recommend giving it a try even if you are not! The author clearly has a great knowledge and fondness of the East End of London and the sentiment jumps off of every page. Ten out of ten!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hero's still abound 27 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
All Ms Fullerton's books have been excellent, This is no exception and in fact if I may be so bold this is the best of the bunch so far. the Hero is outstanding, the damsel in distress is tough but trapped in Victorian conventions in a marriage which is both brutal and a lesson to all women never to fall in love with the flash 'Harry type. I did wonder how the heroine married to a vicious gang member could live happily ever after, only the hero can save her, but how he does so, within the confines of Victorian convention will leave you clapping with joy , (a masterpiece of historical research by the way that informs us but never interferes with the story) but I think its no secret by now that Ms Fullerton likes to give her readers a happy ending so be prepared to laugh and cry as you read this. now have to wait for her next offering which I'm sure will be even better

5.0 out of 5 stars Hold on to Hope 17 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover
This is the fourth and, sadly, final book in Jean Fullerton's Victorian series. Kate Ellis was seduced by a wastrel, Freddie Ellis, and her family forced a marriage. Freddie is a violent criminal and Kate is relieved when he's sent to prison. Unfortunately he returns and intends to ruin the life Kate has made for herself and her two children.
Captain Jonathan Quin becomes headmaster at the local school and the two are immediately attracted to each other.
I read this book in one sitting and enjoyed every page of it.
