Reprint. Originally published: London: William Heinemann, 1994.

In the East End, twelve-year-old Tara witnesses her villain of a father almost kill her mother.

She forges a determination then and there to change her life.

This is the story of three beautiful and talented women.

Mabel, whose great love for a gambling man has brought her close to insanity; gentle Amy, who marries a man brutalised by war and failure; and Tara, who is hungry for success and life on her own terms.

To have both, she must battle against the legacy these two women have left her, the deep prejudices and dangers of Whitechapel in the 1960s - with its gang leaders, rogues, market traders and dolly birds - and the passionate love she has had since girlhood for the charming wideboy and villain, Harry Collins.
