It defies belief that young children could be forced to climb hot chimneys to sweep away the soot but that's exactly what they did not so very long ago! This book is beautifully written from the child's perspective and gives a clear sense of their feelings of abandonment and despair, but at the same time their hope of saving for a future freedom. A very moving book, one I thought about for a long time afterwards. Highly recommended. Thank you to Net Galley and the publisher, Red Acre Press for an ARC.
