Publisher's Summary

Winner of the UK's Richard & Judy Search for a Bestseller Competition, this pause-resistant debut novel follows an orphan whose late, beloved best friend bequeaths her a treasure hunt that leads her all over Victorian England and finally to the one secret her friend never shared.

It is 1831 when eight-year-old Aurelia Vennaway finds a naked baby girl abandoned in the snow on the grounds of her aristocratic family's magnificent mansion. Her parents are horrified that she has brought a bastard foundling into the house, but Aurelia convinces them to keep the baby, whom she names Amy Snow. Amy is brought up as a second-class citizen, despised by the Vennaways, but she and Aurelia are as close as sisters. When Aurelia dies at the age of 23, she leaves Amy 10 pounds, and the Vennaways immediately banish Amy from their home.

But Aurelia left her much more. Amy soon receives a packet that contains a rich inheritance and a letter from Aurelia revealing she had kept secrets from Amy, secrets that she wants Amy to know. From the grave she sends Amy on a treasure hunt from one end of England to the other - a treasure hunt that only Amy can follow. Ultimately, a life-changing discovery awaits...if only Amy can unlock the secret. In the end Amy escapes the Vennaways, finds true love, and learns her dearest friend's secret - a secret that she will protect for the rest of her life.

An abandoned baby, a treasure hunt, a secret. As Amy sets forth on her quest, listeners will be swept away by this engrossing gem of a novel - the wonderful debut by newcomer Tracy Rees.

    "The best book I've read all year! Probably all this decade"

    The writing was exquisite the storyline kept you enthralled, and the imagery made you feel like you weren't there. The narrator made an amazing book even better. I plan on listening to this book again and I never do that. I was so sad when I turned the last page as I felt like I left friends behind. I love this book

    "Well worth a listen"

    Unique storyline, well written, AMAZING NARRATION! I really enjoyed this book and could find absolutely no fault with the performance by Melody Grove. I will look for more titles with her narration. I found the concept/story line fresh and interesting. Would recommend!

    "Absolutely stunning debut!"

    A must listen for lovers of historical fiction. A cozy novel that transports you to the inner world of a girl and her noble friend in Victorian England. Of hundreds of books, this is in my top ten.

    "Excellent!"

    I thought Tracy Rees did a brilliant job on this book! It kept my interest all the way through, and I loved Melody Grove's narration, which was the perfect voice for Amy Snow; and her voice changes for the other characters were good and believable, as well. Very enjoyable!

    "Wonderful Story!"

    I loved this sweet, albeit a bit predictable, story. An interesting portrait of Victorian life. Finally family appropriate to listen too!
