'Surely one of the best saga writers of her time' – Rosie Clarke

January 1928, the Isle of Dogs.

Following the mysterious disappearance of her sailor husband, young widow Eve struggles to provide for herself and her twin sons. When her flower-selling business is destroyed overnight as the Thames floods its banks, Eve's is forced to take refuge with the lecherous Harold Slygo and his drunken wife.

As Eve's home life turns from bad to worse she is befriended by a young constable, Charlie Merritt, who shares Eve's growing suspicions that her husband's death was no accident. And when Eve herself disappears, it becomes clear there are those who would go to any lengths to ensure the truth remains buried.

Will Charlie be able to save the woman he has grown to love before it's too late?
