A Christmas hope a novel
—Perry, Anne.
Restricted DAISY Zip (CELA)
2017

Claudine Burroughs, a volunteer in Hester Monks clinic for sick and injured prostitutes, no longer expects closeness with her coldly ambitious husband and dreads the holidays. Then, at a gala, she meets the attractive poet Dai Tregarron, and suddenly her spirits lift. But an hour later, he is enmeshed in a nightmare - accused of killing a young streetwalker who had been smuggled into the party. Even though she suspects that an upper-class clique is quickly closing ranks to protect the real killer, Claudine and the clinics disreputable bookkeeper, Squeaky Robinson, vow to do their utmost for Dai. It seems, however, that hypocritical London society would rather send an innocent poet to the gallows than expose the shocking truth about one of their own. Sequel to "A Christmas garland", followed by "A New York Christmas". 2013.
