“Yorkshire Molly is the first in a gripping trilogy that breathes life into Hogarth’s captivating series “A Harlot’s Progress”.

Innocent virgin Molly Huckerby arrives in London from York hoping to marry her wealthy and respected cousin. But her innocence is stolen as she is lured into The Bell by the notorious bawd Mother Wickham. She is destined for a life as a kept whore, but in a breathtaking twist she finds an unlikely saviour...

Underlying this wicked tale is the story of a spirited woman’s struggle against overwhelming misfortune and the brutality of 18th Century London.” (from the back cover)
Here is the trailer for the book, with a selection read by the daughter of the late author:
