Summary

Step into the world of Dilly Court and uncover her new, utterly captivating historical romance!

Clinging tightly to the penny in her palm, Flora’s fortune was about to change…

Flora is forever grateful for the day the Stewart family rescued her from her life of poverty on London’s streets. Adopted as one of their own, she shed her rags and was finally given a place to call home.

When a twist of fate calls her back to the cobbles, Flora’s new life is torn apart.

Flora must make her own way if she is ever to find where she truly belongs…

From the No.1 Sunday Times bestselling author of The Rockwood Chronicles comes an emotional and captivating fireside read about finding home in the most unlikely places.

Great Story

One of those books where you can't wait to see what happens next. As usual brilliantly narrated by Annie Aldington. Definitely one of my favorite narrators. Surely there will be a sequel???

Loved this book, fell for the characters and the plots twisted and turned and wrap up so wonderfully well… I wish there where more books as I am desperately wondering “what next”

Couldn't stop listening to it. Amazing

The lucky penny is heart warming and superb. What was an unexpected surprise was how, 3/4 of the way into the book, characters were linked to those from, 'A thimble for Christmas'. It really added a new dimension and brought back such fond memories of that story and its characters.

The narrator was very good

I liked this book as the narrator was very good. I can’t listen to a book unless it is read well. Always play the sample first !
