What I Thought About The Book
This novel is full of unexpected twists in the story line. It’s a novel which I found difficult to put aside as I wanted to read more and more.
It’s interesting and it’s well written. It tells a story of hardships and poverty. Although Lottie is a very strong and determined girl I couldn’t help as I felt feel pity for her.
This book taught me that in life people go through many problems but the most important thing is to come out strong during and after the problems.
The book also carries a lesson of perseverance to achieve your dreams.
In retrospective to Lottie’s life as a child in this book I feel grateful and grateful to the life I had as a child.
I am proud to have grow up in an era were workhouse are now a thing of the past and children cared properly.
This book is a very good read and I highly recommend to anyone who likes to read a good book with a meaningful story line set in a historical scene.
