Annotation:
Set in late 19th-century Victorian London, this moving young adult novel will thrill even readers who aren't familiar with historical fiction. When Mary is sent away from home by her stepmother to find work, she becomes a maid in a grand home. There, she finds herself involved with a man in a love affair that ends terribly. Mary's story alternates with a little boy who struggles to survive in a foundling home, away from the foster family he loves. Eventually, the two stories collide in unexpected ways.

Praise

"A thoughtful, accessible and richly detailed read that moves along at a satisfying clip--this will appeal beyond just already-established fans of historical fiction." 04/15/2010
