Moll thought she could keep her family safe . . . Eighteen-year-old Moll Chambers works her fingers to the bone doing all she can to support her family. With an ailing father and a wayward mother, Moll is the only one who can look after her siblings, Bo and Sissy. But Manchester is an increasingly dangerous place to live, overrun with a ferocious rivalry between gangs of so-called ‘scuttlers’: young men and women bent on a life of violence and crime. And they have her brother in their sights. Soon even Moll can’t protect Bo from the lure of the criminal underworld. Then the scuttlers looked her way. When she herself falls for the leader of a rival gang, Moll’s choices place her and Bo firmly on opposite sides of the city’s turf war. With her loyalties now torn in two, and tragedy lurking round every corner, will Moll be able to rise above the conflict and protect those she loves the most? Or will stepping out with a scuttler spell ruin for them all . . . ? MANCHESTER MOLL is an absorbing saga that will tug at your heartstrings. Fans of Dilly Court, Rosie Goodwin and Maggie Hope will love Emma Hornby.

Geschrieben in der Ich-Perspektive, beschreibt Defoe das Leben von Moll Flanders. Moll Flanders wächst als Waisenkind auf und wird zu einem beliebten Kind bei einigen reichen Familien. Als sie für das Waisenhaus zu alt wird, nimmt sie eine dieser Familien auf. Sie verliebt sich in den ältesten Sohn der Familie, der jedoch seine Liebe zu ihr nicht öffentlich machen kann, da sie nur ein Hausmädchen ist. Nimmt diese scheinbar hoffnungslose Romanze ein glückliches Ende? Daniel Defoe (1660-1731) war ein englischer Schriftsteller, der durch seinen Roman Robinson Crusoe weltberühmt wurde. Defoe gilt damit als einer der Begründer des englischen Romans."

Born to a petty thief in London’s notorious Newgate prison and determined to make her way in a rapacious and materialistic society, Moll Flanders recounts the “fortunes and misfortunes” of her turbulent life in this 1722 novel. Though Moll Flanders was shaped by the conventions of criminal biography, Defoe also drew on other literary traditions and his own rich background to create a remarkably original—and still controversial—work. In addition to a critical introduction and substantial footnotes, this Broadview edition provides a wide range of writings by Defoe as well as contemporary responses to Moll Flanders. Other appendices include a selection of eighteenth-century writings on crime, prisons, and the Virginia colony.
