An amazing read. I found myself not able to put the book down. It is an interesting and fascinating look into the life and times of early London, with child slave labor and the ill treatment of the poor class. You feel like you are on the journey with the two main characters, looking over your shoulder at every moment, hoping and praying they do not get caught. I would HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone, history buff or not. This is probably G.J. Griffiths finest book yet.
A sidenote: The dialogue is written with varying dialects which would've been seen during the early times of London, with different slang terms here and there. Fortunately, the author provides a glossary for those who need some of the dialogue deciphered, which is truly helpful.
