Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas Eve. Flurries of snow fall on the cobbled streets of Whitechapel, and an abandoned baby, swaddled in a blanket, is found on a doorstep in Angel Lane....

Named after the street on which she was found, Angel Winter was blessed to be taken from the harsh streets into a loving home. But fate deals a cruel blow, and she's torn from the only family she has ever known, thrown onto the cobbles of Covent Garden to fend for herself.

With winter closing in, Angel scratches a living selling mistletoe to the city gentlemen who pass through the market, hoping they will take pity on her as she shivers in the snow. The only way she can survive is to make her own luck. She will never sell the one treasure that could feed her for a month, the gold and ruby ring that was hidden in her swaddling - it could hold the key to the secrets of her past....

    Story
    "A warm cosy read"

    I love all Dilly Courts books but this has to be one of my favourites, it’s another wonderful cosy read made all the better by the brilliant and very talented narration of Annie Aldington.

    In typical Dilly Court style the book begins in the back streets of London on Christmas Eve, when a baby is found abandoned in Angel Lane in Whitechapel. She is taken to the local church ladies where one childless lady is totally captivated by the infant’s angelic face. With the baby in need of a wet nurse they head to the local jail and it is there we meet another main character ‘Lumpy Lil’ who is asked to nurse the child. The infant is then named Angel Winter, after the lane where she was found and the season of winter.

    Several years later, tragedy strikes and Angel finds herself alone, homeless and penniless on the streets of London. It there she meets the effervescent Dolly and the two strike up a lasting friendship. Dolly takes Angel under wing and teaches her how to survive on the streets by selling flowers. Barefooted and almost frozen, Angel has almost sold all her Mistletoe when she is attacked and her money stolen. She has nothing left but still will not part with her secret keepsake, a gold and ruby ring that was found hidden in the bag when Angel was left in Angel Alley.

    This is a heartwarming read, full of wonderful characters and the usual unsavoury character. It is story of never giving up hope, true friendship, and determination, overcoming adversity and very much about caring for others. It's an easy read that makes you smile, I loved it and would love to see a sequel.
