The Thames Never Sleeps unravels life in Britain at the end of eighteenth and early nineteenth century…
A love story of a man from poor background and the unloved daughter-in-law of a lord. Their love at first sight turning into a lifelong struggle to find a life together.
This intriguing story offers a taste of the challenges in Britain at that time. A heart-breaking narrative of the children who had to work in the mines and factories. Crime, smuggling and destitution being the dominant part of life. The introduction of the railways, industrial revolution and inventions of the time, changed the direction of life itself. The Battle of Trafalgar and a decisive win over Napoleon which helped Britain to shine in the world.
