Lizzie’s Wish (Historical House)

This bunch of sentences is about a girl called Lizzie, whose big ambition is to become  a gardener. Lizzie is sent away to live with her Uncle’s family when her evil stepfather, Mr Bright declares that Lizzie’s mother needs peace as she is pregnant. Lizzie tries to be brave and she sends a daily letter to her mother, but when the return letters stop coming, Lizzie finds herself on a rescue mission with Uncle William who fought in the Crimean war. The description of the book on the blurb was “A compelling story of one girls determination to defy the stifling conventions of Victorian life.”
