🍁These Lost & Broken Things by Helen Fields
These Lost & Broken Things is set in two time periods, Victorian and Edwardian London, during Sofia’s childhood then her adult life. The stories run in parallel. When her husband dies unexpectedly and leaves her penniless caring for two small children, Sofia has to find work anywhere she can. Her husband’s former employer Mr Vinsant, a wealthy industrialist, offers Sofia work in his gaming houses, but the tasks he requires her to carry out quickly turn much more deadly. Willing to do anything to protect her children and keep them out of the workhouse, Sofia draws on a troubled childhood for the inner strength she needs to face her new life. Sofia adapts, almost too well, and becomes the very person she’s spent her life running from. Set against the backdrop of the suffragette protests, class struggles, and a new industrial era in England, this is the tale of an unwilling assassin who is trapped both by poverty and the shadows of her past. Maiden, mother, murderer.
