New! Gail's latest novel now available!
The Tomorrow Country
In London of the1870s, new wealth and staggering poverty smash the old order. Rich and poor alike claw to better their place in the treacherous turbulence. The social ferment reaches even a newborn baby, abandoned in a gutter, who stubbornly refuses to die. Young Katie’s fight to beat the odds as a street child brings together a crazily diverse rebel crew who also refuse to be bested by their society.
When genteel radicals, pioneers of the Home Children movement, create a scheme to give destitute youngsters new lives in Canada, they little guess their unorthodox fundraising efforts will trigger a blazing battle of ambitions stretching from the lowest criminal dives into the path of the Prince of Wales himself. A battle that threatens to undo them all.
From this rousing mix of social climbers, demimonde intrigue, sensual appetite, ingenious theft, glorious talent and renegade lovers emerges a new breed who fling off the constraints of the Old World. Reaching for the freedom of the New, they become Canadians-in-the-making, longing to trade England at her peak for a wild risk on infant Canada, the tomorrow country. But will they prove tough enough, brash enough to win this daring dream?
