This is a well-written, remarkable book., 12 Feb. 2001
This is an amazing novel about the experiences of Laura Blundy, told in her own words. It is set in the Victorian Era and describes the harsh deprivations of the times. Laura recalls the horrific events of her life, including the amputation of her leg, in a blunt matter-of-fact manner which serves to enhance the shocking details. It is also a mystery story as certain parts of Laura's life only make sense at the end after numerous plot twists. This book is definitely worth buying!
