The author of the USA Today
and New York Times bestselling novel The Girl Who Came Home has once again
created an unforgettable historical novel. Step into the world of Victorian
London, where wealth and poverty exist side by side. This is the story of
two long lost sisters, whose lives take different paths, and the young woman
who will be transformed by their experiences.
In 1912 twenty-year-old Tilly Harper leaves the peace and
beauty of her native Lake District for London to become assistant housemother
at Mr. Shaw’s Home for Watercress and Flower Girls. For years the home has
cared for London’s flower girls—orphaned and crippled children living on the
grimy streets and selling posies of violets and watercress to survive.
Soon after she arrives, Tilly discovers a diary written by
an orphan named Florrie—a young Irish flower girl who died of a broken heart
after she and her sister, Rosie, were separated. Moved by Florrie’s pain and
all she endured in her brief life, Tilly sets out to discover what happened to
Rosie. But the search will not be easy. Full of twists and surprises, it leads
the caring and determined young woman into unexpected places, including the
depths of her own heart. Download and start listening now!
