For one young couple, chasing happiness proves to be much harder than first thought.

In the second instalment of his Tanner Trilogy, Harry Bowling brings us The Girl From Cotton Lane - a remarkable portrayal of an East End docklands community between the two world wars, as it undergoes rapid and turbulent change. Perfect for fans of Pam Evans and Cathy Sharp.

Cotton Lane in dockland Bermondsey is one of the many small cobbled streets which serve the wharves. On the corner is Bradley's Dining Rooms, the favourite eating place of the rivermen, trade union officials and horse and motor drivers. Since her marriage to Fred Bradley, Carrie has been running the dining rooms, and trade has picked up since the end of the Great War.

But all is not well between Carrie and Fred. For although they have a little daughter they adore, neither of them is truly content. Will they ever know true happiness?

What readers are saying about The Girl From Cotton Lane:

'[Harry Bowling's books] just get better and better. This book follows on from the last one so easily you just get carried away with the lives of all the characters and you feel as if you are peeking in all the houses in Bermondsey and seeing what is happening in their lives'

'Couldn't put it down and enjoyed every moment'
