Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The emotional tale of Little Nell and her doting grandfather was an immediate popular success in 1840-41. Played out against the backdrop of a cold and brutal London, the twosome abandon their home to escape debt and roam the countryside as beggars. Relentlessly pursued by a malicious moneylender and encountering ne'er-do-wells, con artists, and the persevering poor, they also find goodness and generosity, love and loyalty. Dickens' proficiency in creating richly diverse characters are evident in this tale that brims with pathos and villainy.

Synopsis:

In an emotional tale of loathsome villains and the persevering poor, little Nell and her grandfather are forced to abandon their home and roam the countryside as beggars. Victorian audiences were enthralled by the story when it was first published, and it remains today a great read, full of unforgettable characters and plot twists.

Synopsis:

Heart-wrenching tale of Little Nell and her doting grandfather who flee from cold and brutal London in the 1840s to escape debt and to roam the English countryside as beggars.
