Victorian London is a difficult place to survive in the best of times, but when women are faced with crippling poverty there are few options. A young woman who married too soon is left alone at a workhouse with promises from her husband that he will return when he finds a better life. A pregnant woman enters when she has no where else to go, and soon after she loses her baby she tries to offer others aid and comfort. The woman that runs the workhouse is working poor and wonders if she will ever find happiness for she is only one step away from being an inmate.
The book's style will appeal to everyone interested in the triumph of spirit that women possess. Told through Victorian era life lessons of friendship and strength through struggle, these lessons still ring true today. "The Starlings of Chatham Street" (ASIN B00BH38R36) is available on Amazon.
