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.
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 shopfront 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. Download and start listening now!
