Product description


Book club comments: "I was drawn in straight away." "I cared so much about what happened to these children." "I knew nothing about this and loved how it told both sides."

Product Description

London’s East End heaves with child prostitutes, hawkers, beggars and thieves. Constance rescues as many children as she can but feels overwhelmed. A solution is offered that sounds perfect – Canadian farmers need workers, their wives want housemaids. Shipping children to this land of plenty offers them a future. Widow, Mary Trupper, is wary, but the promise of a good life for her children is strong.
