Summary
Poplar, London, 1920. Fourteen-year-old Victoria Keats is horrified when her father demands that she go to work for wealthy Mr Preston - everyone knows why he takes young girls into his house. But when she stands up for herself, he throws her out. Despite her courage and quick wits, it seems likely she will starve - until two men, both complete strangers, provide her with no-strings-attached help. As Vicki's life improves beyond all recognition, she can't help but fixate on the mystery of these two good Samaritans: who were they? And why did they help her? She determines to find the men and thank them, but tracking them down may be harder - and more life-changing - than she thinks
