An absolutely great read! I got so engrossed in the story I couldn't put it down. Hope is the story of a girl born to an aristocratic mother out of wedlock whilst her husband is away. The mother thinks her baby was stillborn but is actually taken by a young maid to be brought up by her own family as a poor village child. The book follows Hope's struggles and happiness as she find herself in love and a nurse in the Crimea. There are many twists and turns along the way and gives a real insight into the lives of the extremely poor living in the slums of disease ridden Bristol.
