For all those dear readers of Lizzie of Langley Street, you will recall the first cover of Lizzie Flowers with a background of an East End street market - in my book “Cox Street Market” and Lizzie centre picture, wearing a pretty blue and white spotted dress. Simon & Schuster have now released a NEW COVER for Lizzie of Langley Street and as you will see, the cover has a brand new illustration. Accompanying Lizzie are her two sisters, the strong-willed Babs and the loyal Flo. I hope you like the new cover especially the nameplate of the road, The East End Girls.
Here is Amazon’s blurb: Following her mother's untimely death, Lizzie Allen is facing desperate times. Her father Tom, crippled during WWI, has been left a broken and bitter man; her elder brother Vinnie is in serious trouble with the local hard man; her two younger sisters are in danger of being taken into care, and her sweetheart Danny is heading for Australia to seek his fortune.
Determined to keep her family together, yet unable to escape the poverty and degradation of the slums, heartbroken Lizzie is tricked into marriage by Danny's unscrupulous brother, Frank.
Can she escape her increasingly unhappy and violent marriage and save her family? And will she ever be reunited with her one true love, former barrow-boy, Danny Flowers?
