Cinderella Sister (Paperback)

Dilly Court


Lily Larkin is the youngest of six and the least important member of her family. With their father dead and their mother a stranger to them, she must stay at home and keep house whilst her elder siblings go out to work. As she goes about her daily chores, her head is full of dreams. And she longs for the day she can have a life of her own. When a fire threatens to destroy the nearby docks, Lily's act of kindness towards a handsome foreigner has disastrous consequences for the whole family. For shortly afterwards they are thrown out of their home and have no choice but to move into two mean rooms above the fire station where Lily's brothers work. Here the family struggles to make ends meet. But just when things might be looking up for them all, Lily makes a terrible error of judgement. In anger her eldest brother turns her from the door. Forced onto the streets, Lily wonders if she'll ever see her family again...

CInderella sister -

I'm sorry but the whole story is not convincing by the fact that the family live in near-poverty but there are five salaries plus a grandad's pension coming into the house which to my eyes make it a very prosperous family and really well off for those times. I couldn't enjoy the story by thinking of this incongruous fact.
