    1. This is another forgotten Victorian novel from the excellent Victorian Secrets publishing house. As the novel opens, Lilly Dawson is an unloved child slavey at an inn inhabited by a highly disreputable family. The novel follows her adventures in London to her final discovery of her true identity. There is a large cast of memorable characters and some horrible skulduggery along the way. Wonderful stuff.
