The family is forced to move to a mill town, where Emmaline?s mother is dreadfully injured in a factory accident. To ease her pain she takes laudanum and is soon addicted, craving the drug so badly that she sells Tommy into servitude as a chimney sweep in London.

If Tommy is to survive, it is up to Emmaline to find him.Linda Holeman brings a bygone period to life in a book of serious historical fiction for young adults.From the Hardcover edition.
