    1. The stories of two very different women intersect at the height of Jack the Ripper's killing spree. Michelle Finlay's husband died on her wedding night, leaving her in a fortunate position with money to spare. Michelle takes up the cause of helping destitute women by training them for other available jobs. She also discovers very young girls who were kidnapped from their homes to work in brothel's. Upon trying to expose the fate of the young girls Michelle is set-up for the murder of one of the [...]

    2. It's wonderful to see the characters from The governess and the stalker weave their way into this tale in such a intricate and important fashion. We see Brian and Michelle and explore their love for one another and where they go together. Her sister in law makes a appearance as well in helping her with her newest venture of helping women have a alternative to working the streets to survive.

Mary Jane Kelly [...]

    5. This is a classic historical fiction novel combining true events which are truly terrible, and a real-life character who lived the most difficult life imaginable. This is a dark story of Victorian times, but in reality the nineteenth century was a dark time. Skillfully the threads of fact and fiction are woven together to a finale that makes as much sense of tragedy that was possible.
