Books
1905: Ruby Caselton may only be twenty-five years old but she already has the weight of the world on her shoulders. Heavily pregnant with her second child, penniless and exhausted, she is moving her family into a new home. The Caseltons left their last place when they couldn't pay the rent, but Ruby's husband Eddie has promised this will be a fresh start for them all. And Ruby desperately hopes that this time he will keep his word. With five-year-old George at her feet and her mother having a cross word for everyone and everything, life is never dull at number thirteen Alexandra Road. It doesn't take long before Eddie loses another job and once again hits the bottle. It's up to Ruby to hold them all together, through thick and thin. She remembers the kind, caring man Eddie once was and just can't give up on him entirely. What she doesn't know is that Eddie has a secret, one so dark that he can't bear to tell even Ruby.
