Description

In 1677, 12-year-old Meg loves working with her widowed father in his London bookshop. When she grows up, she will inherit the shop. Then she will be independent and can choose her own husband. But her father remarries, and Meg's plans are suddenly in ruins. Based on careful research, this novel offers a brilliantly detailed panorama of Restoration London and a view of women's roles in that era.

Professional reviews

"The world of 12-year-old Meg Moore is turned upside down. No sooner has a comet streaked across the sky of seventeenth-century London than Meg is swept into a new life as she gains a stepmother and infant brother, the new heir to her father's estate. Through it all, Meg comes to steer a steady course as she finds her personal delight in plays, writing, and bookselling. Emily Gray brings Meg triumphantly through the tumult of this formative period. Initially distressed and resentful, Meg emerges determined and happy with both her place and her potential. Young adults will find this a thought-provoking look at the teenaged years of another time. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
