The Disgrace of Kitty Grey
Out: 9 May
Kitty Grey has a nice life working as a dairymaid with her sweetheart Will. Then Will ups and leaves for London. When she’s given the chance to go to London, she decides to go after him. Only for everything to go completely downhill.
Mary Hooper weaves everything together so well – characters, historical facts, story. I really felt sorry for Kitty Grey, lost and penniless in London, having to look after a young girl – Will’s little sister. Although that little girl annoyed me by making things so much worse for Kitty, she would have been just fine without her. But that was the story, and kids are like that.
It was a very quick read – I read it in half a day – but I got sucked up in her story and the horrible time she had in London, and really wanted to know how things would end up.
