Today I have a little bit different kind of post for you. I’d like to share with you, dear readers, my review on the book written by Dilly Court and titled “The Beggar Maid” I hope you’ll enjoy it.
The Beggar Maid by Dilly Court
Yesterday I finished reading the book and I am really liked it. It’s a fictional story about the difficult lives of the poor, making dreams come true and breaking barriers. Dilly Court created an amazing story that kept me absorbed from the first pages till the end.
The book tells the story of 16-year-old Charity Crosse who has been living with her grandfather and begging on the streets of London since she was eight. When he dies, with the help of a friendly doctor, Charity finds work at Jethro Dawkins’s bookshop. Though she’s not well-treated she’s grateful that she’s got a house and her life is going to get better and better. She finds love in books and learning. Unfortunately, Jethro dies unexpectedly and she has to run the shop on her own. Will she manage to pay the raised rent or … Will she have to return to the streets? Will there be anybody to help her?
Actually, I really liked the book. The characters are well-created, every single one of them is different and unique. The action is interesting and fast, but too predictable at times. The book has taught me that we not always have an impact on what is going on in our lives and sometimes we just have to accept it. It gave me information on how did the life of beggars from the 19th century looked like. Anyway, I enjoyed reading about Charity, though I’d like the ending to be different.
If you are looking for a good read for holidays, The Beggar Maid is definitely for you. It will keep you “stuck” to it from the first page till the very end. I would really recommend this book to everyone who likes adventure stories with a romantic plot.
