This wonderful historical saga has to be on your reading list (Women’s Realm)

Her work is inspiring and challenging (Sunderland Echo)

Wendy's great strength, as well as the ability to tell a good story, is in the creation of her characters. These are real people with faults and strengths so we actually care about them... Wendy's style is deceptively easy (Northern Echo)

Format: Paperback
In this, the first book in THE KITTY RAINBOW TRILOGY, Kitty certainly makes an unconventional appearance. Ishmael Slaughter, a bare-knuckle fighter in the mid nineteenth century, sees a baby fall from a viaduct and rescues her from the River Wear. He has no idea who her parents are and he names her Kitty Rainbow. His landlady has just killed the kittens he was caring for so he dare not take the baby home with him. Instead he persuades a Scottish draper with a tendency to hit the bottle to look after her along with Thomas, her 'strange' young son. Kitty continues her unorthodox life, learning to cope with her foster mother's drinking bouts and Thomas's silence. She grows up wild, fending for herself, battling against those who would drag her down, fiercely loving to her friends, Ishmael most of all, but tough with her enemies. She works hard, finds love and becomes pregnant, but now most of all she feels the need to know something about her parentage. Ishmael, now ageing is the only link she has, but he knows nothing and she travels from Priorton in the north of England to London. She had known danger in her hometown but this is the London of Jack the Ripper when every young woman on the streets walks in fear. After learning the story of her parentage she returns north to her loved ones to build a life for herself and her baby. Wendy Robertson draws such a realistic picture of a town in the northeast of England in the nineteenth century, peopled with strong characters, good and bad, rich and poor, that the reader endures Kitty's hardships and fights her battles with her, cheers when she wins and worries with Ishmael about what is to become of her.
