Product Details

Praise

“Written in 20 chapters to mirror the installments in which Dickens released his novels, this atmospheric story is imbued with the sights, sounds, and smells (or more accurately, odors!) of 19th-century London’s rookeries, or slums. Like Dickens, author Schwartz (Crossing to Freedom, 2013, etc.) evokes the moral and political forces of the time; readers, particularly Margaret Atwood fans, will find parallels to the present. This Dickensian #MeToo novel calls out the lingering need for women’s rights.”—Kirkus Reviews

“[Orpha’s] struggle, colorful period detail, and the triumph of women so badly treated make for a fascinating read for those interested in women’s history.”—Booklist
