What readers are saying about… ‘The Forgotten Children’

Isabella Muir is a very descriptive, emotionally charged author who lets you feel the pain alongside the characters, instead of merely brushing over it like you’ve just spilt your cuppa. Not only did ‘The Forgotten Children’ fill me with joy, it also created the hunger to know more about those destructive years.

The author has composed some wonderful figures and relationships and really sets the scene of desolation and despair. By reading this (and be advised you will read page after page before taking a break) it’s easy to feel as though you are in the long gone Victorian ages not just a few decades ago. A truly inspiring book full of history which a lot of people are probably unaware of, this is fascinating at the same time as being disturbing. I think a lot of the credit for that goes directly to the thoughts and compassion of the author.
