Blurb; When Sam falls in love with Deptford thug Derek, and Anne’s best friend Kathleen takes her own life, they discover they are linked not just by a world of drugs and revenge; they also share the friendship of the uncanny and enigmatic Deborah. Seamstress, sailor, storyteller and self-proclaimed centenarian immortal, Deborah slowly reveals to Anne and Sam her improbable, fantastical life, a history of hidden Deptford and ultimately the solution to their crises.
My Review; There is just something about this book I loved. It is a strong contender for my final place in my top twenty of 2018. The story is told through three main characters all loveable in their own way, Sam, Anne and Deborah. This story was not what I expected at all but brilliant.
It is a brilliant, easy to read story which contains short chapters. It’s bound to keep the reader hooked throughout, a real page turner… Well it was for me. Throughally enjoyed it. I was right beside each of the characters throughout. I loved the stories Deborah had to tell, interesting. Different. Not what I expected at all… But loved it.
Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars from me.
