On the streets of the Bowery, you do whatever it takes to survive. This is the story of two "Bowery girls"—the pickpocket Mollie Flynn and the prostitute Annabelle Lee, young women without family or education who must fend for themselves.Two young women whose survival depends on each other. After a chance encounter with Emmeline DuPre, a "Do-Gooder" who has recently opened a settlement house, Mollie and Annabelle are given the opportunity to better themselves. But the city offers many temptations the girls must overcome. This vibrant, carefully researched novel shows how much—and how little—our world has changed.

Read information about the authorKim Taylor Blakemore is a recipient of a 2018 Regional Arts and Culture Council grant to continue her research of 1850's New Hampshire, and a finalist for the 2018 Tucson Festival of the Books Literary Award. Both honors are for her novel in progress, The Companion.
She is currently immersed in the world of antebellum New Hampshire: the mill towns, the tension between "upstairs and downstairs", the telling of a crime by a woman convicted to hang for murder. Sex, lies, betrayal. Grand passions and winters that drive people mad. You know, just a little Gothic tale...
She is the author of the novels Bowery Girl, a NYPL Best Reads for Teens; and Cissy Funk, a WILLA award-winner for Best YA Novel. She is also the author of two interactive historical romances, The Very Thought of You and It Don't Mean a Thing. This year will also bring two historical short stories: Ain't She Sweet and These Foolish Things.
She is a member of Women’s Fiction Writing Association and Golden Crown Literary Society, and teaches Craft of Fiction and Historical Fiction workshops with PDXWriters in Portland, OR.
