"This powerful historical novel vividly evokes London in 1842 and the terrifying plight of 13-year-old Maggie Power and her younger brother Tom. Fine characterization...and skilled pacing make this a real page-turner." Publishers Weekly on this 2011 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi Finalist. After the death of her mother and imprisonment of her revolutionary father, thirteen-year-old Maggie Power is plunged into a world of poverty and violence. Promising to protect her younger brother - come what may - she scavenges upon the mudflats of the Thames, haunted by the constant shadows of hunger and disease. That is, until a chance encounter with a charitable countess, who rescues her from the brutal streets of 19th century London. But Maggie's troubles are just beginning. For the rich life presented to her by the mysterious countess comes at a dreadful price. A suspenseful, historical mystery, Dark Remains takes the reader on a journey through the dark heart of early Victorian London.
