Details

Set in the 1760s, this coming-of-age novel follows the short life of young Mary Saunders who, cast onto the streets of London by her heartless mother, sells her body to survive before finding help in the Magdalen Hospital for penitent prostitutes. Seeking a better life, she travels to Monmouthshire and is hired as a dressmaker’s assistant, but further misfortune awaits her. Donahue’s eye for historical detail, particularly costume, enriches this tragic tale of adversity. Sexually explicit.
