Publisher's Summary

Circumstances force eight-year-old Sarah and her widowed mother to enter the notorious St Giles and St George’s Workhouse.

When her mother dies in childbirth, the independent-minded Sarah falls foul of the workhouse master, Trigg, and his cruel wife.

Sarah’s ordeal seems to be over when a sugar mill owner takes her into his home.

But her wealthy benefactor reports Trigg and his wife. And blaming Sarah for their misfortune, in a fit of revenge, the couple decide to take the law into their own hands.

Captivating Listen

This is the third book I have listened to and I am hooked on this author - having now put all the books I can find in my Wish List. This book is a thoroughly absorbing, captivating story of poor girl making good with riveting storyline and detail in between. I so admire the author for the descriptive scenes and great characters. I highly recommend this audio book.

Yes I will definitely listen to this book again, the story was well written and I love Annie Aldington reading it using her very different character voices.

When Grey accidentally killed Trigg

Which character – as performed by Annie Aldington – was your favourite?

Netty

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Grey took care of Sara after he kidnapped her

TRUELY LOVELY

I really enjoyed this book.
It flowed with variety.
Keeping you immersed in the story.
Sad at times, funny at times but more so, just a really good warm feeling book.
Sad it’s finished!

Another great book by Dilly Court

The superb Annie Aldington compliments Dilly Courts books to bring the characters to life, jumping from the page.

Enjoyable but unbelievable & predictable.

I did enjoy listening but found the storyline a little unbelievable (yes I know it’s fiction!) and a little predictable.
But, all in all, it was an entertaining listen.
