Nettie's Secret

by Dilly Court

Sagas and Romance

Nettie's Secret Synopsis

The new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author. Taking one last look around her attic room in Covent Garden Nettie knows there is no turning back, they must run for their lives... London, 1875. Thanks to her hapless father, Nettie Carroll has had to grow up quickly. While Nettie is sewing night and day to keep food on the table, her gullible father has trusted the wrong man again. Left with virtually nothing but the clothes they stand up in, he's convinced that their only hope lies across the English Channel in France. Nettie has little but her dreams left to lose. Even far from home trouble follows them, with their enemies quietly drawing closer. But Nettie has a secret, and it's one with the power to save them. Can she find the courage to trust in herself and pave the way for a brighter future?
