  • Australian Historical Fiction

    Sydney Australia, the Great War is over, the city is bustling in a post war boom and unfortunately it also has a seedy side. Grog shops, gambling dens, brothels are busy and snow or cocaine is available to buy on the streets. Dolly Bowman is a country girl from Wollombi she arrives in Sydney and has interview with Mrs Millie Mack for a cleaning job at her boarding house on 54 Boundary Street. She’s young and innocent, the next day she’s sent to gather the sheets, change all the beds, boil the copper, she starts washing the piles of dirty sheets and she finally understands she’s working in a high class brothel. Cynthia Burton works at Boundary Street as a prostitute, she seems to be very hard, tough and at the start she and Dolly don’t get along. Cynthia made a promise to her family, she needs the money she earns and she's not going to let anyone get in her way! Dolly and Cynthia find themselves involved in a world that no young girl should have to tolerate; women alone had very few options and were easily taken advantage of. The high end bordello looks like a safe place to work, yes the girls are prostitutes but they don’t have to take their chances on the rough streets and it’s a much safer alternative. Mrs Mack discovers Dolly can sing, suddenly cleaning isn’t her only employment option and she wants her to perform every night? All is not what it seems, especially with the owner and it’s a story about secrets, lies, double dealing and 54 Boundary Street is a very dangerous place to work.

    Thanks for your feedback!
