The black silk purse

Kaine, Margaret

When young, wealthy spinster Letitia Fairchild witnesses Ella Hathaway being beaten, she takes the girl into her charge as a maid. As Ella grows up, the bond between the two women grows stronger, and they embark on a quest for Ella's mysterious past. From the miseries of life in a London workhouse, to the splendour of a beautiful mansion, Ella searches for more than what happened to her mother, but for that which has always been denied to her: love, family and a home
