A fire and other trauma leave young Bobbin Derby with a
blank memory and no apparent family. She is raised in an
orphanage. Despite adversity, she is precocious, reading
everything she can find. Her sweet, infectious nature wins
friends, benefactors, and unexpected opportunities. Over
time, she deals with her troubled past, rises in society,
inherits a book shop, lands a good marriage, and even
finds her long lost ... She grows into a lovely humanitarian,
and lifts up all those around her.
“A tear jerker. Touches the heart many times over.
Inspiring and full of insights. A must read. I loved this one
of Kennedy’s ... and have read all of her wonderful books.”
— William Miller
“A sweet and inspiring story of growth and the uplifting of
the downtrodden ... I loved it. Kennedy is a superb writer in
this genre of historical British fiction ... she follows the
morals and manners of the day. Yes, I recommend this
