about

An amazing story of one woman's time as a prostitute's maid in 1940s Soho. Barbara Tate was 17 when she heard the whispered word that would change her life: Soho. It would take four years for Barbara to escape her loveless home but when she finally made it to the forbidden streets of Soho - just as London was recovering from the trauma of the second world war - things would never be the same again. There the naive Barbara meets the beautiful and capricious Faye. When she takes a job as Faye's maid, Barbara imagines she'll be housekeeping. But down a shabby backstreet, Barbara discovers the secret lives of Soho's working girls. An astonishing world full of fierce friendships and bitter rivalries, dangerous men and desperate measures, Barbara soon learns that taking the money from a staggering supply of punters and making copious amounts of tea are only the bare essentials. She will need to be nursemaid, protector and confidante to impossible, adorable, self-destructive Faye. The tumultuous and heartrending friendship at the heart of the Queen of Soho gives us a window on a people and a place almost lost to us. It's a story of adventure, survival and growing up, told with experience, honesty and real heart.
