In the turbulent East End of London in the thirties, Jessie Warner is growing up . . . Blackshirts are marching through the streets of Stepney and the Jewish community is under threat of violence. In the midst of this, Jessie discovers a family secret and turns to her mother for answers, but Rose is reluctant to reveal the past - for there is something that Jessie must never know. In Bethnal Green, Hannah Blake is being forced by her cold-hearted mother to join the Blackshirts, despite her deep misgivings. Next-door neighbour Emmie knows of the darkness surrounding Hannah's wretched past, but is bound by a vow of silence not to reveal it. And meanwhile, Emmie's son Tom, chipper and handsome, has just fallen for a blonde girl he wants to bring home to meet Emmie and Hannah. Her name is Jessie Warner... A romantic saga full of life and set against a dramatic backdrop, from the author of At the Mile End Gate and Over Bethnal Green.

A historical East End saga that will enthrall readers, from the bestselling author of Whitechapel Mary and Over Bethnal Green. In 1876, the homes of the poor working class in the East End are being replaced by splendid houses for the rich. When Kelly's Yard comes under threat, Maria Bertram inspires her neighbours to rebel against eviction. But when a woman is found murdered in Tobacco Dock and the young man Maria loves is arrested, she must do everything in her power to prove his innocence and save him from a public hanging. Without realising it, she puts her own life at risk when she stumbles across a web of deceit in the planner's office. It seems the murderer is much closer to home than she thinks...

Crossrail, the ‘Elizabeth’ line, is simply the latest way of traversing a very old east–west route through what was once countryside to the city and out again. Visiting Stepney, Liverpool Street, Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street, Gillian Tindall traces the course of many of these historical journeys across time as well as space. The Tunnel Through Time uncovers the lives of those who walked where many of our streets still run. These people spoke the names of ancient farms, manors and slums that now belong to our squares and tube stations. They endured the cycle of the seasons as we do; they ate, drank, worked and laughed in what are essentially the same spaces we occupy today. As Tindall expertly shows, destruction and renewal are a constant rhythm in London’s story.
