It's Christmastime in 1905 New York City. Molly Murphy Sullivan and the children are listening to carolers in the street when they discover a beggar girl and her brother huddled in a doorway. Well-spoken and clearly used to better things, these are not the usual city waifs. Who are they? And what's happened to their mother?

I so enjoyed discovering this series (thank goodness for displays in the library!) and am in the process of requesting more.
Turn of the century in NYC appeals to me, and the characters are well developed with a good plot.
Perfect for curling up with in a turn of the century home and spending a few hours under a warm blanket.

A good story with an exciting ending.

A terrific feel good Christmas time book. After such sad times in Bowen's previous book, it is so nice to have this one showing such Christmas charity. And even Molly's formidable mother-in-law showing her a gentler and kinder side.

It's Christmas time and, after all the disturbing things that have happened in the past year (1905), the Sullivan family is looking forward to a quiet, family celebration with Daniel's mother and Bridie, their ward. However, Bridie, Molly and their neighbors, Gus and Sid determine to help a brother and sister who are begging on the streets, but seem to be uncharacteristic of street children. This is a feel good Christmas story, and very well done--shopping at FAO Schwarz, communicating by messenger, and a mix of cars and horse drawn carriages. A pleasant respite.
