Summary

The sisters of Street Child tell their story…

A companion novel to the best-selling story of Victorian orphan Jim Jarvis, based on the founding of Dr. Barnardo's homes for children.

When Jim Jarvis is separated from his sisters, Lizzie and Emily, he thinks he will never see them again. Now for the first time, the best-selling author of Street Child reveals what happened to his orphaned sisters.

In Victorian London Lizzie and Emily are left in the care of a cook, but their story takes them to the mills of Northern England. There, under the keen eyes of the mill owners, the girls are made to work in harsh conditions, and any chance of escape is sorely tempting…

An incredible new Street Child story based on the true experiences of Victorian mill girls.

Amazing

My teacher read to me the book about Jim ( street child ). So I decided to get this book it is so beautiful. At times it is scary but at others it is almost like they were in another world. It is one of the best audio books I have ever listened to.😁
