Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

'I could barely explain how much I wanted to go back to London, for I hardly understood myself. I'd hated the stinking city when we'd left, could hardly bear to think on it's name, but now the plague had disappeared from the streets the people would be back, the theatres and shops would be open, and we would find everything as cheery as it had been before.' <br> Hannah returns to her beloved London to re-open her sweetmeats shop with her younger sister Anne. Londoners are reeling from the plague epidemic of the previous year, but Hannah and Anne are keen to start enjoying everything the bustling city has to offer. But this is 1666, and it has been prophesised that terrible things will happen, and on Pudding Lane, flames are raging through the bakery...<br> Mary Hooper evokes the sights, sounds and terror of a London gripped by a ferocious and terrible fire, engulfing everything in its path.
