Summary

Ivy Harris is twice unwanted by the time she's two years old. Thrown away both by her parents and her grandmother, she has no choice except to live with her aunt, Bertha. As brilliant, kind, and loving as Bertha is, she's also a crook and a thief - and her ways get them both into trouble more often than not.

When Bertha dies, Ivy’s whole world ends - until she meets charismatic, compassionate, golden-haired George, the leader of a gang of street children living in an abandoned warehouse. Despite the best efforts of jealous Jane, Ivy falls for George. Even when they're separated by Jane's antics and Ivy becomes a kitchen maid in a fancy house, she never forgets him.

When George is wounded and dying from infection, it's Ivy who saves him. But saving him costs Ivy her job - and almost her life. She's wandering the streets now, alone and scared, and her life is in terrible danger. Can George save her? And is there some connection between him and Joseph Shaw, the rich man whose hair also shines like spun gold?

The spirit of Charles Dickens flows through this story

The author skillfully captures the feel of the lives of Street kids in Victorian London. Pain, heartache, fear and the joy of belonging again all are woven into the narrative. I would recommend this story to readers of any age.
Disclaimer: I received a free review copy of the book from the author, and I am delighted!

A thief that I fell in love with

A beautiful narrated book. The story of an orphan whom is brought up by her aunty.
They steal to survive. When Ivy has nothing left in such a hard world she finds love.
An audio book that leaves you in suspense to the end.
