Summary

Katy Carr is always dreaming of the time when something will happen to make her famous. But when it does, it's not at all what she wants.

In this moving story, Katy Carr overcomes a tragic accident and learns to be as loving and as patient as the beautiful invalid, Helen.

Critic reviews

"This tale of a boisterous child coming into maturity reads with the same zest and insight as it would have done when it was first published over 130 years ago." ( The Guardian)

An astonishing book, I would recommend this to anyone who has read Anne of Green Gables, Little Woman or the Secret Garden.
