Description

a lot of her pain in held inside but as you read the story you kind of take the role of Lily on so when events play out it’s like it’s your own emotions playing out on paper! Tremain, who is 78, has embraced several eras and territories across her best-selling works, earning numerous literary accolades (as well as her CBE, in 2007).

Lily's story is a winter's tale: a cosy pageturner that will whisk you away from the 21st century while engaging and sharpening your mind. The whole story about the lady making religious figurines who Lily thinks could be her mother was also pointless.but for this book, I reckon it was because the protagonist was ultimately so likable, driven by an inner strength to act justly for others. Surrounded by the beautiful landscape of rural Suffolk, and with a family and animals that she loved, Lily was really happy. Abandoned at the gates of a London park one winter's night in 1850, baby Lily Mortimer is saved by a young police constable and taken to the London Foundling Hospital.

The contemporary reason is fury at a society that still allows children to be hurt; not a week goes by without some hideous organisation being revealed as abusive. We meet the fascinating cast of characters who shape Lily's life, the policeman Sam Trench, the evil hospital nurse, and Belle Prettywood - the colourful businesswoman who becomes Lily's employer and friend.Tremain’s natural curiosity and love of travel seem directly channelled into her fictional narratives. There was a completely triggering scene out of nowhere and then countless pages of every other character losing their shit over Lily. This is a mystery/historical fiction book with a beautiful cover that sounded so good to me, I read the blurb and I was desperate to read it and I have to say I was disappointed.
