The Runaway Daughter

by Joanna Rees

Part of the A Stitch in Time series Series

The Runaway Daughter Synopsis

The Runaway Daughter by Joanna Rees is the first novel in A Stitch in Time - a sweeping historical trilogy. It's 1926 and Anna Darton is on the run from a terrible crime she was forced into committing. Alone and scared in London, salvation comes in the form of Nancy, a sassy American dancer at the notorious nightclub, the Zip. Re-inventing herself as Vita Casey, Anna becomes part of the line-up and is thrown into a hedonistic world of dancing, parties, flapper girls and fashion. When she meets the dashing Archie Fenwick, Vita buries her guilty conscience and she believes him when he says he will love her no matter what. But unbeknown to Vita, her secret past is fast catching up with her, and when the people closest to her start getting hurt, she is forced to confront her past or risk losing everything she holds dear.

The Runaway Daughter Press Reviews

An epic page-turner. It takes you to the height of opulence and the depths of despair, and shows that growing into a life of privilege doesn't by any means guarantee happiness. Joanna Rees combines some very hard subject matters with wonderful love stories, spectacular locations and an incredible cast of characters -- Novelicious.com on A Twist of Fate This is a big-hearted book that leaves you walking on sunshine -- Brighton and Hove Independent on The Girl from Lace Island
