Book Description

May 4 2004
The setting is present day London; a familiar scene you may think, but the people who inhabit this London are not the office workers, the shoppers, who form the lifeblood of the city, but those who move around its edges, the dispossessed, who live quite a different existence, under the tunnels and the waste grounds that the rest of us hurry by. Some are refugees, some are escaping from the blanket of domesticity; some have fallen through violence. They all try to survive. Nio a young Greek man has built a hidden home in Coldfall Woods, near St Pancras Cemetery. Mila, a spirited Romanian refugee lives with her family in a huddle of caravans near the North Circular Road. Nio is a dreamer, Mila is feisty. Together they will take on this ragged life; together they will win. But theirs is not an easy city. Their London exacts a hard tribute. There are pitfalls in this London, from which the dispossessed, however strong their will, find hard to recover. A wonderful, heartwarming, heartbreaking tale of a love that takes on all that such a city might throw at it.
