Review

...a good story...impeccable... -- The Times, 16 April 2005

Rubenhold proves herself both a keen researcher and a writer who understands narrative tension...a compelling and ingenious book... -- The Independent, 29 May 2005

Scrupulously researched and cleverly structured...Among the scurrilous tales of 18th-century low life...this one is the most intriguing. -- The Daily Telegraph, 19 June 2005

From the Inside Flap

The Covent Garden Ladies tells the story of three unusual characters: Samuel Derrick, John Harrison (aka Jack Harris), and Charlotte Hayes, whose complicated and colourful lives were brought together by this publication. The true history of the book is a tragicomic opera motivated by poverty, passionate love, aspiration and shame. Its telling plunges the reader down the dark alleys of eighteenth-century London's underworld, a realm populated by tavern owners, pimps, punters, card sharps and of course, a colourful range of prostitutes and brothel-keepers.
