The Runaways Of Haddington Hall Vivian French


In stock

The city of Middleminster has become a battlefield. Not one but two Charitable Ladies’ Associations are scouring the streets, searching for plucky urchins to ‘rescue’. A young laundry-maid by the name of Minnie O’Sullivan is soon whisked away to Paradise Cottage, a nightmarish home for wayward orphans – even though her mother is very much alive. Her friends plot to help her, but first they’ll have to outwit Mrs Doomchapel, a wicked philanthropist, and Obadiah Marpike, a dastardly conman hiding in plain sight.
