Publisher's Summary

Blackwell Union Workhouse hid a secret for eight long years. Two daughters born behind the dark walls thrust into the arms of the wrong mothers - one mother the Master’s wife, the other a slave of poverty, Dora.

Phoebe and Claretta, the workhouse babies, switched at birth and thrust into an uncertain future.

As the years unfurl, destiny sends the young ladies in different directions, but their hearts are bound. One runs, the other seeks. One haunted by fears, the other reaching for a faith and a future. Both longing for love.

Their stories are woven into a lifelong saga that will keep you listening to the heart-rending end.

Will Phoebe discover her roots and finally find peace? Will Claretta’s past prevent her opening her heart to the arms of the man she has grown to love?

Two ladies forged in an unlikely sisterhood. The men who seek to love them. The long journey from workhouse to a world filled with deepest tragedy and soaring joy.

This is the story of Dora’s workhouse child - a historical Victorian romantic saga. If you like Dilly Court and Rosie Goodwin, you will love reading, Dora's Workhouse Child.

Enjoyed

This was the first book I've read/listened to by Dolly Price. I really enjoyed the audio although a few "sayings" seemed out of place for the time period. But who knows, maybe I'm completely wrong! I enjoyed the storyline, although I didn't like most of the characters. Crazy. But I didn't want to pause so I could find out what happened with Phoebe. Clara was my favorite character. Megan Green did an great job. I enjoyed her voice. Her performance was well done for male and female voices. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Good yarn

Quite different to what I normally read (or listen to) but enjoyed the story. Turned out a bit different to what I was expecting, not all happy ever after for everyone. All in all well worth listening to.
