Living in Victorian London a young cripple girl is abandoned by her family. She is taken under the wing of Mr.Swift who helps young actresses who have 'problems'.
Unfortunately they meet Mr.Treble and things go very wrong, and the police come knocking at the door.
A dark atmospheric story with well written characters who have their own tales to tell.
The story had me gripped from the first to the last page and I have now bought two more of Janette Jenkins books as I was so impressed by this one.

1899 and it's survival of the fittest on the streets of London and for young Jane life is tougher than for most with not only the pain of her crippled bones to contend with, but the daily hurtful taunts regarding her as a useless freak of nature. Jane is bright and resourceful though and has a hunger for learning and knowledge. When her heartless family move on leaving her behind, she endears herself to her landlady and starts working as an assistant to her landlady's husband - a doctor who helps showgirls with their 'problems'. Through her work, Jane becomes entangled in the case of an unexplained death, but who is going to believe a poor cripple girl's story?

I thought this was going to be a run of the mill Victorian London novel - I was wrong. This was a beautifully and sympathetically written account of a strong young woman, who most unusually for fictional Victorian heroines was not reliant on her charm and looks and that made it all somewhat refreshing, I really felt for Jane and her plight. I loved the characterisation and the bawdy descriptions of the time - a very enjoyable and well written book.

Format: Hardcover
This book was exactly the kind of book I wanted to read at the time, the story line is enticing and the character of Jane is very well portrayed from beginning to end - allowing the reader to truly see her developing character. It is easy to emphasise with Jane through her struggles, and see her grow as a person.

Overall a great read and highly recommended.

I would not recommend this book really. Seemed to take an age to get going with lots of clichés. Sorry.
