In 1660, with Charles II restored as King after Oliver Cromwell’s Commonwealth, an orphaned girl named H arrives in London, for a happier life with her Aunt. But the Plague and the Great Fire take away the people and the city that she loves. Friendless, destitute and disgraced by her lecherous cousin, H is forced to survive on the streets, in a London under quarantine. In this edition of Historical Fiction, Rob Weinberg talks to author Sarah Burton about her first, enthralling novel The Strange Adventures of H.
