Butterf1ngers | 1 comments I read this book back in school a lot of the details are fuzzy but here's what I remember:

-There are two protagonists one female and one male
-Starts out with both of them in an orphanage, eventually the girl gets adopted by a woman (to be her maid?)
-Boy eventually finds out he has a father who paid for him to be taken in by the orphanage
-The woman who adopted the girl had a silver heart shaped pocket watch given to her by her ex husband that was supposed to tick forever as a sign of his love but it broke when she found out he made a similar watch but in gold for another woman
-The author is a male who's name I cannot remember
-There may have been an element of magic

I know it's very vague, but thanks for reading and possibly helping me remember this book.

How long ago were you in school? Class of 2017, 2007, 1917? :oP

Do you remember if this was historical or set in modern times? From the way you are describing the "adoptions" I'm thinking it's probably historical, yes?

Children's, YA, or adult? Remember the cover?
