Product Description

The moving, unforgettable new novel from the author of the bestselling inspirational memoir ‘The Little Prisoner’

Life was never going to be easy for little Dani Sinclair…

On a cold winter's night, a heavily pregnant teenage girl appears at a London hospital. She refuses to give her name, and gives birth to a baby girl. But immediately after the birth, she disappears, leaving the baby alone in the hospital. The child, named Dani after the midwife who delivered her, is put up for adoption.

Twelve years later Dani is living with a foster family. A vulnerable and unworldly girl, Dani is an inconvenience and always being blamed for things that aren't her fault. After being wrongly accused of performing an act of petty childish spite, Dani is sent to a children's home. The home is full of difficult children, who bully and victimise Dani. Terrified of both the children and the grown-ups, she runs away.

Dani spends several nights on the streets of London, begging for food. When a stranger offers her something to eat and a place to sleep, she accepts gratefully. But what she does not know is that this man is a brutal pimp who tries to drag Dani into a violent, drug-fuelled world of prostitution. Soon she is plunged into an unimaginable nightmare of abuse that she truly believes will never end.

But there is one person out there searching for Dani; one person who has her best interests at heart; one person who will do anything to save her. It's just a matter of whether she can find her in time…

5.0 out of 5 stars mummys little girl - jane elliott 18 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
I have never felt so strongly to write a review of a book. I thought that Sadie was good, by the same author, but this book blew me away. The characters were believeable, you could almost be in the same room when the storyline took place, especially the "big bad Baxter", and my heart was racing a few times towards the end of the book

The twist at the end was no surprise, but that didnt spoil the book at all.

This reminded me of days gone by, when Martina Cole used to write a good unputdownable book, and Martina should be aspiring to be as good as Jane Elliott

To miss this would be a traversty, go out and buy this

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! 3 Feb 2009
By Beamer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic read! In fact this is the first review I've written, so that's how much it impressed me. I thought that Sadie,also by Jane Elliot was good but this was even better. It had your attention from the start and I couldn't put it down.
The characters are good and the story is a bit harrowing at times for poor Dani.
As a Martina Cole and Mandasue Heller fan, I would thoroughly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 29 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
I have been a fan for the last couple of books by Jane, I thoroughly enjoyed Sadie, and was really looking forward to this new book.

I could not put it down, at times the story is so desperate it is heart-breaking, but very well written and I am eagerly looking forward to future books. I have read Martina Cole for years, and have now found another favourite in Jane Elliott.

5.0 out of 5 stars well worth reading 9 Dec 2008

This book was exciting to read from the very first page and very hard to put down once started. It was very well written and i felt the same when i read the little prisoner by this author. Cant wait to read Sadie next.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN EXCELLENT READ 2 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The storyline is very disturbing but keeps you hooked all the way through, I read it in a day and I would recommend it if you like Mandasue Heller.

I will not go into detail about the book as the other reviews have already done so but be warned - YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Harrowing but a Dammed Good Read 3 July 2009
By Alessi Lover TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Even though this book is a harrowing read, a tale of a little girl called 'Danni', abused and having a really terrible life (if one could call it that). It is still a heart wrenching good read, the details of Danni's life from birth to where she reaches in the story are so full of emotion it makes you feel deeply for her.

One thing that does puzzle me though is that the description says that the book is a real life story, but the back cover states it as being 'fiction', either way it is a really good read. Not a light hearted read by any means, it deals with lots of emotional and drug issues along with prostitution and just how far a mother's love can go.

The ending is somewhat a bit of a shock, that is all I can say.

This is the first book I have read by this author, will now look out for the one she has done before this and her latest one, as I really enjoyed it. Not usually in my reading zone, but so glad to have read it and would recommend it to others that want a non-light hearted emotional read. (Have some tissues at the ready though, it made me cry at some points).
