Publisher Description

Based the true story of Annie MacPherson, one of the first Victorians to ship children from the poor streets of London to the open fields of Canada.

Rich in detail and character.

It’s 1875 and London’s East End heaves with child prostitutes, hawkers, beggars and thieves. Annie 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.

Loved the story

The story was an unexpected delight. Very well written and nicely paced.
I was so surprised when it ended, I was really hoping to get some closure on some of the stories of the children.

Fantastic read

I loved reading this book! I really enjoyed the details and stories of the people, and the ending for me was awesome. It wasn’t a typical happy ending: it left me thinking and impressed with the book and what I learned. I don’t think I’ll forget this one for a long time!

Thumbs down

Wretchedly trite couldn’t wait to finish. Just not what I’d hoped for.
