This book is a sort of follow on from the exellent Doorstep girls but it follows the lifes of Georgiana and Kitty and also Edward Newmarch as they make new lives for themselves in America.
Georgiana longs for equality and fought for womens rights in England and as she begins her exciting and sometimes dangerous journey across parts of America she realizes that she has finally got the equality she has wanted. Meeting lots of interesting people on the way including Indians one of whom becomes more involved with her then he thought he would.
Edward on the other hand does not fair so well and spends a great deal of his time on the run. The way their storys mingle then finally come together is brilliant with Edward finally mending his ways and georgiana taking care of his child.
Then in the last few chapters when georgiana and edwards daughter jewel visit Hull we get to visit the old characters and catch up the lives of Ruby and Grace. This book is fantasic and although Valerie writes brilliantly about Hull it was nice to be taken to somewhere new where you could very easily imagine the new world of America
