en Limba Engleză Paperback – 25 Nov 2021
Schoolboy Luke runs away to London, far from the abusive orphanage where he grew up. He's desperate not to end up as a petty criminal, and forced to beg for scraps on the street. Luke wanders the East End docks struggling to find honest employment and morsels of food to fill his grumbling stomach.
Longing to be a part of the close-knit community, Luke volunteers to work with the local doctor and his wife. Their kind words and welcoming home is everything he's ever wished for. But not everyone wants the best for Luke and his new friends.
A dangerous man is looking for revenge, and Luke risks being pulled into the dark criminal underworld of the docks. Will he be forced to sacrifice the life he's built for himself in order to protect those he's grown to love?
