London, 1861. Each day Grace must find a new way of earning enough money to pay the rent for the bleak, cold room that she and her sister live in, and to buy them enough - just - to eat.

But there is a different danger threatening Grace, a danger linked to an event in her past that she is desperate to forget. Grace has caught the eye of the Unwins, an unscrupulous family whose shady business dealings are those of death and mourning, and who will stop at nothing to defraud two young women of what is rightfully theirs...A gripping, fast-paced novel for older children about two poverty-stricken sisters and their struggle to survive in Victorian London.

    " I really loved the book. Set in the Victorian era, around 1860 I think, it's basically about a girl named Grace trying to live in really harsh and terribly poor conditions in London with her sister. The book starts off really depressing, since a horrible tragedy happens to Grace, which I'm not going to reveal here, but basically the first few chapters of the book is about how they tried to live on their own in one of the most poorest towns in London.I really liked how the author went into such detail about their situation, especially when she describes about the area that Grace and her sister lived in. It actually gives you so much info about how terrible conditions the lower class people had to live in back then. Anyways, the story starts to pick pace once when the sisters were forced out of their homes and into the streets, that forces Grace to find a better job than the one she had before (which was selling watercresses on the streets). And the new job she takes on not only changes her life, but everyone around her as well. That change definitely brings about something good for Grace and her sister, a change that both of them definitely deserved. The book held me captivated until the end. I really encourage everyone to read it! "

    " Fallen Grace was great! Mary Hooper can really write a captivating novel set in the Victorian Era! I loved how all of the little pieces of the story that didn't seem to make any sense at first fell together and created an awesome plot! I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, or is just looking for an interesting and fast read.:) "

    " This historical fiction was very Dickens-like. Which isn't a bad thing. I am sure that was a direct purpose of the author, the "good ol' boy" even makes a cameo appearance. I think I would use this as an intro to Dickens for the middle grade reader. Dickens can be very detailed and lengthy reading. This novel immerses you in the same Victorian period and poverty. The main character of course travels a journey of rags to riches and exhibits a valuable moral compass. I have several students I know I would recommend this to. "
