The author of "The Minister''s Daughter" and "The Sign of the Raven" has created a memorable tale of 19th-century England with a character destined to take her place alongside Dickens''s Pip and Oliver Twist.
From the Publisher:
In mid-nineteenth-century London, young, mistreated, and destitute Ivy, whose main asset is her beautiful red hair, comes to the attention of an aspiring painter of the pre-Raphaelite school of artists who, with the connivance of Ivy's unsavory family, is determined to make her his model and muse. Reprint.In mid-nineteenth-century London, young, mistreated, and destitute Ivy, whose main asset is her beautiful red hair, comes to the attention of an aspiring painter of the pre-Raphaelite school of artists who, with the connivance of Ivy's unsavory family, is determined to make her his model and muse. Reprint.
Annotation:
Richly written and steeped in images of the slums of late 19th-century London, Julie Hearn's mesmerizing young adult novel follows the fortunes of Ivy, a tiny girl whose bewitching beauty captures the interest of a painter. Used by nearly everyone around her, from her family of thieves to her employer, Ivy struggles with a laudanum addiction and a frightening past. As things intensify around her, Ivy is forced to find her way out of the drugged haze and into a reality where she has to save herself at all costs.

Praise

"Hearn infuses Ivy with quiet luminosity and a feisty inner voice that convince readers she might fight to claim her own happiness. Teens will find such contemporary issues as addiction, animal cruelty and vegetarianism nestled comfortably within this clever work of historical fiction. Intricate, engaging language and quirky characters paint a vivid picture of the Victorian era." 5/1/2008

"A fast and absorbing read." 6/9/2008
