"And what was I, a mere printer, doing sweeping up my silk skirts on Jermyn-street, you might ask? Well, if you know anything about our city, I'm sure you can guess..."London, 1820: George IV is to be crowned King at last. But will his estranged wife Caroline be allowed to join him as Queen? The city is in turmoil, as her radical supporters rally to her cause and threaten to overturn the government.Into this tumultuous world is thrown Nell Wingfield, a gutsy seventeen-year-old printer of political pamphlets. Nell has recently returned home after a six-month absence that she would rather not explain. After her mother's death, she was duped into working at one of the 'Houses of the Quality', the brothels on St James's, turning tricks with men at the heart of the English establishment. When one of them -- a key protagonist in the plot to keep Caroline from the throne -- was found dead in his bed, it was time for Nell to leave. But, back on Cheapside, she finds that the family print shop, far from providing a sanctuary, has become a hotbed of dangerous radical activity. Nell's troubles, it seems, have only just begun...The Harlot's Press is a gripping historical drama, in which St James's and Cheapside, royalty and the rabble become thrillingly entangled as Nell fights for survival.
