“A young girl discovers a new side of her family after she’s taken in by her aunt. ... The latest from Kennedy is an enchanting work of historical fiction bolstered by an appealing heroine and well-developed supporting characters. The narrative unfolds briskly over a period of several years ... Kennedy’s narrative is further enhanced by period details ... A charming work that may appeal to fans of Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters.”
Kirkus Reviews

"A coming-of-age story about a young Victorian-era girl who overcomes life's adversities with humility and humor. I've read all of Kennedy's books and recommend reading her books twice ... there's always more to what you read than meets the eye. This novel is the author's favorite, mine too."
