Sir John Penlyon is planning to spend Christmas at his estate with his niece and his friend Danby, the closest thing he has to family since disowning his daughter years ago. (She eloped with the parson, who was, of course, penniless.) Danby suggests that at Christmastime the estate needs the presence of small children, and offers to find some - the “hirelings” - despite Sir John’s skepticism. Three children duly arrive, and the youngest, precocious four year-old Moppet, quickly endears herself to Sir John.

I wasn't so sure of the upper class old English to begin with, but it very fast grew on me and once the children arrive in the story, especially Moppett, it becomes an instant classic! A Quick must read.

Despite getting way too heavy on certain historical factors for me (I just could not keep up), the fast paced action kept me wide awake on the long work drives. Now for the next one.

Not the biggest fan of Sean Mangan's audio performance, just doesn't sit right. But I'm hoping he will grow on me because Reilly's books kick ass.

Mental illness can hit even the most unlikely of us even behind the smiles of TV glitz and glamour. Be kind to one another and never take life for granted.

Osher shows us the ins and outs of the TV, Music and overall entertainment industry while uncovering the black dog that slowly comes out to play.

Sometimes a tough listen but it sure makes you rethink the way we treat one another.

loved it!!!
