Publisher's Summary

Margriet grew up as a lonely child in the old town of Hull. Her adored father often travelled by sea to the Netherlands, leaving her with an unaffectionate mother and only her imagination of a little Dutch girl to keep her company. When tragedy struck and her father's ship went down in a storm, devastation ravaged her tiny family.
A few years later, Margriet is blossoming into a kind young lady. Keen to escape her mother and strike out on her own, she forms an unlikely friendship with some of the street children who roam the town. As Margriet acts upon her inspiration to help them, will the troubles of her past break her spirit, or will she overcome?
If you've liked books by Katie Flynn and Dilly Court, you'll love Val's heart-rending stories of triumph over adversity.

Brilliant

What a lovely story and read so well by Anne Dover. I really enjoyed listening to this book and it was most interesting learning about the history of Hull and the story of the connection with Amsterdam and the lives of the characters. Thank you Val Wood for a wonderful story. Perhaps a sequel!
