A century after the Industrial Revolution began, some Victorians finally began to confront the problems industrialisation and urbanisation had wrought. The remarkable proliferation of new factories, railways and docks owned by massively wealthy entrepreneurs created new depths of poverty and deprivation, which outraged philanthropist and researcher Charles Booth. These two maps, commissioned by Booth and the first of their kind, classify London streets into seven categories, from the very poor lowest class mainly in the east end (but with some surprising enclaves in the fashionable west) right up to the wealthy upper classes in Marylebone and Mayfair. A fascinating resource for genealogists, historians and all lovers of London's past.

Secrets present. Secrets past. Secrets in India, where Stephen's grandfather is a lowly functionary in the engine room of the Raj. Secrets at home, held tightly by Stephen's half-Indian, half-Scottish mother. Only by uncovering what has been hidden can Stephen win Julia, a woman with secrets of her own... Set in St Andrews, Scotland before the millennium; among the early-Twentieth century jute mills of Dundee; in the industrial underbelly of colonial Calcutta and on the epic plains of ancient India, Karna's Wheel is a poignant story about love, inheritance, and the things which make us what we are. 'Karna's Wheel is compelling, multi-layered and beautifully written.' Chris Given-Wilson, shortlisted for the Wolfson History Prize 2017

528 BC. In a tormented Egypt, threatened both by the Greeks' over-mighty influence and the Persians' desire for conquest, the struggle for power has taken the form of a deadly conspiracy - and young scribe Kel finds himself unjustly accused of murder, the helpless scapegoat at the centre of a sinister Intrigue of State. As he strives to prove his innocence, the only person Kel can rely on is Nitis, the beautiful young priestess with whom he is deeply in love. But then Nitis vanishes, and suddenly nothing seems to matter to Kel: neither his sullied honour, nor the mysterious coded papyrus, nor the future of Egypt itself. Nothing except the fact that he must find Nitis and rescue her. In order to save the love of his life, Kel throws himself into a desperate quest, his destiny and that of Egypt inexorably bound together. Will he survive long enough to discover the truth and restore his good name? Nothing is certain. For when human beings choose to follow a path paved with violence and injustice, they cannot avoid the vengeance of the gods.
