Very good. It portrays how rough the life is for a girl working the streets in London in the 1700's. But it also points out some of the freedoms she has. When London becomes to risky for Mary moves to the country to learn the proper trade of sewing and ends up running in to trouble there also.
Releasing to book box

MarciNYC's Cleaning Out the Trunk Bookbox in -- Bookbox, -- By post or by hand/ in person -- USA on Wednesday, August 18, 2004
Oh man -- I was so excited to see this in the bookbox, but then disappointed when I realised I already had a copy of this on my shelf. I know this has been on several wishlists, so in the spirit of BookCrossing, I will probably RABCK this to someone, unless it's claimed at our next MeetUp.
This wasn't claimed at our meetup this week, but in an effort to promote goodwill amongst BX nations, this is joining a few others and heading across country to jamesmum for inclusion in the "Kiwi M-Bag" for FutureCat. Travel safely, little book.

IN the NZ M-bag for FutureCat!
The book bag has arrived in New Zealand - this book reserved for Futurecat
Got home from work today to discover a large bag of books waiting for me: my share of the m-bag, dropped off by libragirl. How exciting!!! Many thanks to MarciNYC, jamesmum, and libragirl!
Wow, what a very powerful and moving story! Mary *should* be an entirely unsympathetic character - after all, she prostitutes herself for the first time only because she can't afford to buy the pretty ribbon she wants, and almost all her actions after that point are led by greed and vanity - but somehow the author manages to make you totally sympathise with her, and keep you hoping that she'll find some way to acheive her dreams.
I'm going to have to look out for other books by this author.
I was just looking through my bookshelf and noticed this book still marked as available. I vaguely remember passing it on to someone else at a meetup, but I've got no idea when or to who. It's definitely not still in my possession, anyway - it's out there somewhere in the big wide world.
Interesting read and I had to keep taking breaks from my reading of this book. It was such a hard life for a woman or in this case a girl back in those days. I realised when doing this entry that I hadn't caught this book which is very remiss of me. It sort of got lost amongst the one or two books in my house.
