Description - Song of the Slums by Richard Harland

What if they'd invented rock 'n roll way back in the 19th century? What if it could take over the world and change the course of history?

In the slums of Brummingham, the outcast gangs are making a new kind of music, with pounding rhythms and wild guitars. Astor Vance has been trained in refined classical music. But when her life plummets from riches to rags, the only way she can survive is to play the music the slum gangs want.

Charismatic Verrol, once her servant, is now her partner in crime.and he could be so much more if only he'd come clean about his mysterious past.

'I loved the music, the syncopated rhythm, the dark, smoky atmosphere, the call to arms, the love story.this is gaslight fantasy at its best.' Kate Forsyth
