Publisher's Summary

Eva Masson longs to escape the poverty of her Dundee childhood. She doesn't want to end up in the city's jute-mills where her mother and sister are spinners. Clever as well as pretty, Eva is selected to stay on at school after the age of 14 and trains as a teacher. When she falls in love with Nicholas North, the privileged son of the jute-mill owner, she embarks on a life very different from that of her family. But Eva is principled and compassionate, and things are not easy for her in a world that is often at odds with what she believes in.

The Girl from Wish Lane

Only my second book but this was 'A fantastic story'! Warm, dreamy and inviting and at times overwhelming, I was unable to turn off at times. The readers dialogue made it most enjoyable. Made me feel like i was actually living the story, could imagine actually being there. Cant wait to order my next book! Thankyou Audible!
