Historical House: Lizzie's Wish

Lizzie loves plants, and dreams of being a gardener – a bold choice for a Victorian girl. So when her strict and miserable stepfather sends her away from her beloved country garden to stay with relatives in London, Lizzie struggles to adapt to her new life of stiff manners and formal pastimes. She lives for the daily letters from her mother, and is looking forward to news of her new baby brother or sister. But suddenly the letters stop – and when Lizzie tries to find out why, she finds herself on an urgent rescue mission…

    it is about this girl called lizzie and she has to go to chelsea for a couple of months because her mother is going to have a baby at christmas and her step farther doesn’t want her in the house. she has to share a room with her cousin lucy she doesn’t like lucy because she is very arrogant but she likes her other cousin hugh and the 16 year old ( can’t remember her name) lucy always criticizes her on the way she dresses.

    it is an amazing story and looking forward to see how it ends
