Ebook Deal of Day: 77p “Peckham Cry” by Janice Cooke
Sylvia is an adopted child of abusive parents. Her mother adopted her to get out of doing war work. Her father has a drink problem. She grows up in London during the 1950’s. Her refuge is at school where she can escape the cruelties of her home life. Pregnant at fourteen through no fault of her own, she meets a gypsy boy called Bobby who takes her to see his mother. His mother Rosa helps with the termination of Sylvia’s child. Thrown out of the family home at the age of sixteen and sleeping rough on the streets, Sylvia is arrested and put into one children’s home after another. Desperately absconding, a life on the streets means starvation or prostitution and it is only when she becomes pregnant that Sylvia resolves that her life must change if only for the sake of her child.
