From the Back Cover
How does it feel to discover you don't know who you really are?
Camellia Norton is orphaned at fifteen when her mother's body is fished from a river in rural Sussex. And when she discovers a cache of letters amongst her mother's effects she realises that the past she has always been so sure of has been built on a tissue of lies.
Devastated, she runs away to London, and loses herself in a metropolis that offers opportunity, temptation and danger, especially to a young girl hungry for love and acceptance.
But her past won't stay buried for ever, and eventually Camellia begins the long journey towards uncovering the truth about her background, and also, ultimately, about herself.

As always Lesley doesn't fail to bring her books to life, her attention to detail regarding the time period she writes is incredible. You could almost smell the grease of the little back street cafe, the smell of smoke and the noise in the packed out clubs. You could also get an impression of what London looked and sounded like in the mid to late 60's and 70's.
I felt there was unfinished business with some of the characters, for example Raymond and the inheritance that was left by his mother. What happened to Edward, these are things I would have liked to know...but, I don't think there is enough to make a follow up book to answers these and other questions.
It was a decent read, but its one I could put down and not read again, which is unusual for me and any Lesley Pearse book.
