Dilly Court The Orphan’s Dream
One of my favourite genres of reading is an 1800’s dramatic filled saga set in London.
Dilly Court is an expert at these and an author I love.
I’ve read 18 of her books and I’m about 7 books behind until her latest.
The Orphan’s Dream was released in 2015 so it’s been on the TBR shelf for awhile.
Dilly’s work is always descriptive and your taken back in time to 1881, an era I’ve always been curious about.
You feel like your walking the dark gloomy streets of London.
It’s a great book filled with heartbreak, love, sadness, strength, kindness and misfortune.
The characters are written with passion.
Amongst these there’s the heroine, the sea captain and even an unscrupulous schemer.
If you love a good saga, pick up a Dilly Court book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️4/5 stars

From the age of eight, sixteen-year-old Charity Crosse has been living rough with her grandfather and begging on the streets.

He takes Charity in to help in his bookshop and keep house in their one room behind the shop. Charity sleeps under the counter and is not well treated, but Jethro instills in her the love of books that began when her grandmother taught her to read. And she starts to hope of a better future for herself.
This Sunday Times bestseller is christmassy, romantic and heartwarming. Did I mention christmasssy? It's Christmas Eve and the lonesome mistletoe seller is making her own luck, wandering around in the snow. But Angel, named after the Angel Lane she was abandoned on as a child, might just have a little of luck coming her way. Don't they say that Christmas is the time of miracles?
two book posts in one continuously- daaamn! ft very chipped nailpolish. (but my sis in law told me I should post it so how could I possibly refuse 🤷🏻♀️).
and Dilly Court paves a very special way into my heart.
Yeah. And there are some people who believe it's okay to step on them, tear the pages etc as long as you've read them. The knowledge is now in your head and you no longer need a book... and wtf? NO. Dont you dare. And if you're going to do that you might as well give all those books to me. I'll be more than happy to give them the love and respect they deserve. :'3
Book 1️⃣8️⃣ of 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣7️⃣ has been read. This my fifth book I've read this year by Dilly Court who is an amazing author and talented story writer. If you haven't read any books by Dilly then I highly recommend that you do. In this book Eliza who is very young and "has known little in life but the cold, comfortless" life living in her uncle's chandlery with her brother Bart (who she loves unconditionally)after their parents death. That changes one night after Bart accidentally kills a man forcing him to flee England Leaving Eliza behind in the hands of their cruel uncle wondering will they ever be reunited again. Eliza faces many challenges in the book that changes her throughout the book from start to finish. 👍🏻😄📚
Book 1️⃣3️⃣ of 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣7️⃣ has been read. Another brilliant book beautifully written by Dilly Court. About a young woman by the name of Tilly True, who is driven to make something of her life and often quotes " I ain't always going to be poor, I made me mind up on that." After losing her job as a housemaid under a miscommunication of a stolen Brooch she returns home to her poor family in London. Although her name is Tilly True, she lies to her family by telling them that she has a job as maid to a reverend's sister who is going to India as missionaries. This then leads her into trouble with many more situations ahead of her in the story while trying to resist the charms of Barnaby Palgrave. 👍🏻📚😊
