Summary

Summary

Lucy Wolcott and her younger sister Glory are two young orphans who have no one in the world but each other. Every day, they labor from dawn to dusk in the bleak, cold shelter of a public workhouse in old London Town, where there is little to eat and the nights are cold and damp. The only light in their lives comes from the stories that Lucy invents about a family she barely remembers, and a doll named Morning Glory who Lucy promises is destined to return to them someday.

When Lucy finds an old, discarded doll, Glory is certain that it’s the long-lost Morning Glory. But Morning Glory is no ordinary doll, and how she leads the girls to the most surprising turns of fortune makes for a heartwarming story that brims with love, hope, and the truest spirit of Christmas.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bernadette Dunne’s narration is solid, making the characters real. Dunne’s versatility, as she ably differentiates the characters, highlights the extremes of poverty and wealth in the lives of the different social classes and leaves the reader with a warm, hopeful feeling.” AudioFile
“Imagine that 150 years ago, Charles Dickens decided to write a book just for little girls: a touching tale of not one but two deserving orphans…Woodruff has spun just such a magical story…A ‘dollightful’ surprise for Santa to tuck under the Christmas tree, perhaps in the arms of an old-fashioned doll.” Kirkus Reviews
