Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books. Mary Hooper has been writing professionally for over 20 years.

It is 1666: a year after Hannah, heroine of At the Sign of the Sugared Plum, first came to London and was forced to leave after the outbreak of plague. Having done a few hundred, and thinking it would be good to see something more permanent on the shelves, she wrote and had published 15 teenage novels.
