Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Rich Girl, Poor Girl written by Val Wood, read by Anne Dover.

Christmas 1860:

Polly, living in grinding poverty, loses her mother in childbirth and finds herself alone on the streets of Hull.

Rosalie, brought up in affluence and comfort on the other side of town, loses her own mother in similar circumstances and on the same day.

Polly takes a job as scullery maid in Rosalie's lonely house, and the two girls form an unlikely friendship. Travelling to the North Yorkshire Moors they discover a new kind of life and find unexpected joy and fulfilment.

Enjoyable story and wonderful narrator

Lovely story with nothing too explicit, which makes a refreshing change and a pleasant listen with family. Love this narrator too. With audiobooks, a tone of voice can ruin even the best book, so I now choose my book according to the narrator. Anne Dover is one of the best!

Rich girl, Poor girl

I. Love all Val Wood books, and Ann Dover helped to make it so good for me by the brilliant way she read the book. [She reads books so well, and puts so much into them].
