Abstract:

For Ruby and Rosetta Capretti, life in the slums of the East End holds little promise. Although very similar in looks they dream of very different futures. Coquettish, flamboyant Rosetta is desperate to leave the claustrophobic confines of the sewing sweatshop to follow in her wayward aunt's footsteps and work in the music hall. Ruby, quieter and more modest, has always longed to train as a nurse, a pipedream for a girl from her humble background. When they meet handsome Jonas Crowe, by their father's grave, little do they know how much he will affect both their lives.
