My third Victorian novel is the one closest to my heart as it was inspired by my littlest grandson who is six-years-old, autistic and non-verbal. It’s about a girl from the workhouse who is employed as nursemaid to a young boy who can’t speak.
She tries to show her employers that, just because he can’t speak, it doesn’t mean the boy is stupid. In fact he’s the brightest, giggliest, cheeky boy she’s ever met. Buy it here.
The Water Gypsy was launched in a bar in Malta on my birthday. (I’m not saying which birthday, or which bar.) This book is special to me as it reflects the life of a girl from a poor background who struggles against the prejudice and hypocrisy of Victorian society. Read more here.
The Watercress Girls, a Victorian mystery, also features girls from an impoverished background and highlights the difficult choices they have to make and the limited opportunities open to them. Read more here
