Everyone thinks that Sophie is an orphan. Found floating in a cello case, she is the only recorded female survivor of a shipwreck on the English Channel. But Sophie remembers seeing her mother wave for help… When the child welfare agency threatens to send Sophie to an orphanage, Sophie and her guardian flee to Paris to find her mother, starting with the only clue she has - the address of the cello maker.

The story of Sophie, found floating in a cello case after a ship sank, was endearing and I lived the relationship with Charles, who decided to look after her. I found it a little slow at the start but really enjoyed it after Sophie and Charles got to Paris. Some of Sophies lines were great and the innovative way Katherine Rundell uses description is a joy.
