Summary:

East London, 1888-a city apart. A place of shadow and light where thieves, whores, and dreamers mingle, where children play in the cobbled streets by day and a killer stalks at night, where bright hopes meet the darkest truths. Here, by the whispering waters of the Thames, Fiona Finnegan, a worker in a tea factory, hopes to own a shop one day, together with her lifelong love, Joe Bristow, a costermonger's son. With nothing but their faith in each other to spur them on, Fiona and Joe struggle, save, and sacrifice to achieve their dreams.
But Fiona's life is shattered when the actions of a dark and brutal man take from her nearly everything-and everyone-she holds dear. Fearing her own death, she is forced to flee London for New York. There, her indomitable spirit propels her rise from a modest West Side shop-front to the top of Manhattan's tea trade. But Fiona's old ghosts do not rest quietly, and to silence them, she must venture back to the London of her childhood, where a deadly confrontation with her past becomes the key to her future.

    I have read this trilogy and now just listen to this lovely story. I love Jennifer Donnallys work. I have passed this book on to a dozen friends young and older who all love it.

    Loved every minute and the narration was excellent. I'm on to the next in the trilogy.

    This book was selected for my book club. I didn't think I'd like it. I was drawn into the storyline early on and ended up enjoying it immensely!

    Amazing story. I was riveted by the story and couldn't stop listening. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
