    The Fortune Maker
    Which is more dangerous - a future you can't see - or one that you can?<br/><br/><br/>London, 1913<br/><br/>Twelve-year-old Maud Mulligan knows there's no future for her in London, in the rat-infested slum where she grew up. But in the tunnel under the river are fortune tellers, Seers, who will tell your fortune for a few pennies. And then there is Mr Mandalay, Seer to the king and anyone else rich enough to afford him.<br/><br/>When Mr Mandalay sees Maud in a foretelling for a wealthy factory heiress, she believes Maud can save her family from financial ruin. But how? And why?<br/><br/>In a world shaken by suffragettes, scientists, and the threat of war, what could a girl like Maud do to change anyone's future - or even her own?<br/><br/>Praise for The Fortune Maker<br/><br/>'A glorious book, rich with historical understanding.' - Jackie French<br/><br/>'I didn't want to tear myself away from this book! SO exciting - and immersive. Gritty yet mystical. I LOVED it.' - Catherine Jinks<br/><br/>'With skill and great warmth, Catherine Norton brings England in the early 1900s to life in this gritty, rollicking, mind-spinning tale of danger and deceit that bristles with excitement and a generous sprinkling of magic.' - Suzanne Leal
