Product description

Steam power, spooky seances, intrigue, glamour, danger. No time machine? No worries. Here’s your Victorian getaway. Trapped in a back-breaking job in a Victorian steam laundry, orphan Velvet relies on her wits and hard work to survive. She dreams of a better life, far away from the drudgery of the laundry. So she can’t believe her luck when she is offered a job by Madame Savoya, a famous medium. At first, Velvet is dazzled by her glamorous and wealthy mentor. But Madame Savoya is not all she seems, and soon Velvet’s life is in terrible danger. Add in the gorgeous George, and you’re in for a dark and delicious treat from the acclaimed historical novelist Mary Hooper.
