Inhaltsangabe

The heartbreaking and compelling new audiobook set in a Victorian workhouse from the author of The Orphans of Halfpenny Street

When Lucy and her brother, Joshua, are orphaned, it falls to Joshua to provide for them both, but he is barely into his teens and, in his naivety, falls prey to bad influences and drink. Lucy is desperate to avoid the workhouse, but when Joshua loses their meagre savings they are thrown out onto the street, and, in dire poverty, it isn’t long before Lucy finds herself at its gates - almost a fate worse than death.

Inside the workhouse, Lucy meets with unkindness and cruelty, and she knows she must dig deep within herself if she is to survive, let alone thrive. What Lucy needs is a friend, and she is surprised to find one in the most unlikely place.
