Abstract:

"In some respects Joan Baldwin has bettered herself. A tireless worker, she has progressed from kitchen maid to ladies' maid and accomplished seamstress. But, like many people in London in the impoverished 1920s, Joan has her crosses to bear. Her biggest one by far is her brutal husband. But when he perishes in a fire of his own drunken making, Joan is free. She goes to work as a maid in Kent, where her talents at sewing are noticed and encouraged. Then her kindly employer dies, leaving her two hundred guineas, and Joan takes another plunge - into the world of business. When she meets Eric Roussel, a slick and charismatic businessman, it looks like happiness will finally be hers. But is he everything he's cracked up to be?"--Publisher description.
