Abstract:

From the age of eight, sixteen-year-old charity Crosse has been living with her grandfather and begging on the streets. When Charity's grandfather passes away, she is helped by a kindly doctor who introduces her to bookseller Jethro Dawkins. Jethro takes Charity in to help in his bookshop and keep house. Charity sleeps under the counter and is not well treated, but Jethro instils in her the love of books that began when her grandmother taught her to read. And she dares to hope for a better future for herself. But Jethro dies unexpectedly, and Charity is faced with eviction when the rent is raised by the unscrupulous landlord. Must she give up her dream of running the bookshop herself, and worse, be forced to return to the streets?
