Publisher's Summary

Amy Pearson's family is desperately poor - even by the standards of Edwardian Liverpool - but they have each other. Until Amy is torn from her home by her rich aunt, a woman obsessed by religion and snobbery who wants a girl she can mould as she wishes. Clever and pretty, ten-year-old Amy is perfect for her purposes. It is the beginning of a long journey for Amy, as she desperately searches for the family she lost, and a home where she can be free at last from her aunt's possessive tyranny.
But she will have to endure a forced marriage and a tragic war before she can at last find what she seeks.

Deep & Emotionally Charged

This is by far one of my favorite stories ever! Any woman alive will appreciate the challenges & triumphs of Amy. Be ready to cry, rage, rejoice, and live the thrill of the redemption of true love.

Engrossing

I was captivated within the first ten minutes. Very well drawn characters, beautifully written. The flavour of the period was well drawn and the actress who reads the audio is just magnificent. Her voice resonates with emotion and she creates the sense of a play with her different accents and voices.

somewhat unbelievable

i did enjoy this book, but found that after initial great enjoyment the book descended into somewhat hackneyed characters and plots. It was all a bit too perfect with an 'all's well that ends well' plot and somewhat unrounded characters.

Great Story

Loved this book. I have several of Audrey Howards books and this is the first one I've listened to on audio.
I absolutely loved it - the narrator did a fantastic job.
A great book which has you rooting for 'Amy' and hating her Aunt for how evil she is.
