Shoddy Prince - Sheelagh Kelly Nice little romance that spans 30 or so years.

Nat, the son of a prostitute befriends Irish Catholic Bright as a child and as the years pass they gradually fall in love. He is forever being drawn into trouble though and finds himself in some sort of prison for boys... I can't remember the proper name.

Nat and Bright soon find themselves in a predicament and Nat sees a chance to escape - leaving Bright alone.

It is a nice little Victorian/Early 20th C romance - good characterisation and sympathetic characters.

Also so A Complicated Woman, the sequel.
