Read by: Lucy Rayner

Storyline

In 1763 London, women’s opportunities for economic advancement are either through marriage or sex work. The city’s brothels are run by canny and determined businesswomen, such as Margaret Wells and Lydia Quigley, but there is a new morality on the rise. Religious evangelists demand the closure of brothels, and police are happy to launch brutal raids.
