Set against the Jack the Ripper murders of 1888 the lives of three women intertwine as they are propelled towards a collision with the crime spree of the legendary serial killer:
Alice Redmayne, daughter of a famous artist, haunted since childhood by the disappearance of her sister Beatrice, finds herself enmeshed in the dark secrets of the past and caught between two very different men.
Emma Johnson, is working in a Calais brothel when a terrible mistake turned her whole world upside down. Forced to flee to Whitechapel, she believes herself to be safe until her pursuer reveals a murderous intent.
Cora Lee is the youngest daughter of a H Division Sergeant, living above the Whitechapel Police Station. Bored with her life and longing to escape, she makes a split second decision that will change everything and turn her whole world upside down.
Inspired by the author’s own family history, From Whitechapel is a dark and sumptuous tale of love, friendship, loss and redemption.
