Charlie Daniels has experienced every level of the business of prostitution, been to the depths, risen to the heights and survived both. She started her career as a streetwalker when she was a seventeen year-old single mother, living in a desolate tower block. She needed the money to buy nappies. Her dream was to live an exciting life, and since she had virtually no qualifications, the streets seemed to offer the best way to get it. But the streets are run by and for dangerous people. Eventually she realised that she wasn't going to be able to look after her beloved daughter properly and was forced to hand her over to her own foster mother, just as she herself was given away nearly twenty years before.
Charlie went into business as a Madam. But the streets caught up with her; she got into a fight with a group of girls, stabbed one of them in the eye, and ended up doing time. In prison she saw the error of her ways but within months of coming out, circumstances had forced her back onto the game. Deciding that there was now no other way out of the poverty trap, Charlie went back into business with a vengeance, becoming one of the most successful Madams in the country, with a string of fifty girls working for her.
By the time she was in her thirties Charlie had reached the pinnacle of her profession but she had also realised just how shallow and meaningless her life was, and how much she wanted to get her daughter back before it was too late. She would have to reinvent herself one last time...
