"The Lamplighter" by Maria Susanna Cummins
Gertrude began life as an abused child in the care of Nan Grant, a cold and cruel woman. The only human character who was kind to her was the lamplighter, Truman Flint. When Nan, in one of her tantrums, threw Gertrude away from her house, he took her into his care. A few unforgettable people taught Gertrude everything that a young lady has to know. Almost everybody loves and admires Gertrude. But the one she loved best is Willie Sullivan. Will this love stay strong even after 6 years of separation? And will Gertrude, so admired and loved as she is, be happy - once in her life - for herself and not for others?
Our family thoroughly enjoyed this story. It has similar elements to Oliver Twist and Pride and Prejudice. In popularity it was second only to Uncle Tom's Cabin when it was published in the US.
Unabridged Classic read by Bridget Gaige, a clear and precise reader.
