Lilly Adamabout this book: Set in the nineteenth century, when the Grey family set off from Wycombe to Oxfordshire to embark on a new life at Lavender Farm, nobody could have been more excited than ten-year-old Daisy, an only child and a treasure to her parents. After living in a dilapidated cottage in Wycombe for their entire married life, the opportunity of renting what sounded like the ideal farm in Oxfordshire was an opportunity that Sam and Megan could not overlook.
Disappointed that Lavender Farm was not as they had been expecting, it did not deter their spirits and made Megan Grey even more determined to encourage her husband that it wouldn't take too much hard work before they turned the old rundown place into a wonderful new home and working farm.
After a dreadful tragedy occurs, shattering the entire family and leaving young Daisy in dire circumstances, it soon becomes apparent that the landlord and his wife have a darker side to them and Daisy becomes victim to their cruel plan. Daisy's life is marred by unfortunate circumstances and by her trepidation of the dreaded workhouse.
Follow Daisy's life as she embarks on a journey and is forced to quickly mature from a child into womanhood and face many obstacles in her path before she finds lasting happiness.
