An enthralling story about love, motherhood and choosing who you belong to in the world by best-selling author Kimberley Freeman. 1874: only days before she is to leave the foundling home where she grew up, Agnes Resolute discovers that, as a baby, she had been abandoned with a small token of her mother: a unicorn button. Agnes always believed her mother had been too poor to keep her, but after working as a laundress in the home she recognises the button as belonging the daughter of a local noble.

Engaging from the very start. Filled with adventure, love (lost and found) and discovering what and where home really lies. Hey laughed and cried throughout the story. One of the best I’ve listened to in a while!!
