Description

Under the watchful eye of her overbearing father, Dorothy takes care of the practical side of running a parish, from organising church f̻tes, visiting parishioners, and managing the finances Рeven as her father risks everything in his search for the right investment.

One day she awakes to find herself thrust onto the perilous streets of London with no money and no memory. With only her own wits to help her, she must find a way to make a living, braving hunger, scandal, and a cast of unscrupulous and unforgiving characters.

A Clergyman’s Daughter is an eloquent and moving portrayal of the human costs of the Great Depression and demonstrates how coming face-to-face with a different world can make you question everything you once
believed in.
