Description - The Capricorn Stone by Madeleine Brent
Bridie Chance has been brought up in luxury, but her world is shattered when she is told that her much loved father had been a highly-successful criminal - and is now dead.
With no home, no friends, and almost no money, Bridie finds herself responsible for a family and discovers new friends and enemies. There is Alfie Perkin, the music hall comic from her mother's past, Nathan McFee, the man from Wyoming; Philippe Chatillon, the French detective; and Victor Sarrazin... Bridie holds a secret she does not know she
possesses, a secret that both friends and
enemies are anxious to discover. As she struggles to support her family, Bridie finds love and danger - until the truth is revealed to her in a nightmare ordeal under the shadow of the Capricorn Stone.
