From the Publisher:
Gentle Emmaline loves nothing more than books and flowers and her little brother Tommy. Her happy country life ends with her father's sudden death. Her family moves to a mill town, and her mother is terribly injured in the factory. To ease her pain, Emmaline's mother takes laudanum and is soon so addicted that she sells small Tommy into servitude as a chimney sweep. Emmaline knows that a sweep's life is short and awful: boys as young as five are forced to climb naked into dark chimneys, their bare feet prodded by nail-studded rods. Emmaline knows that she must find him or he will die in the dark he so fears.
