Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Orphans of Ardwick by Emma Hornby.

After a cold, hard winter on the streets, three orphan children are about to give up hope when an unexpected turn of events brings them to the doorstep of a grand house in Ardwick, Manchester.

Taken in by the firm but kind-hearted cook, the young friends can hardly believe their luck. But behind Bracken House’s impressive façade lies a household steeped in troubles and mystery, with residents above and below stairs battling their own demons and dark secrets.

Not everyone is happy about the new arrivals, and soon the orphans’ safety is in danger. If they want to stay in the first home any of them have known for years, they must unravel the past and bring hope to the future. Will they succeed? Or will they come to regret ever leaving the mean slum streets they once called home?

Ridiculous

The book was very disappointing, the sequence of events often wrong and the time scale of events was unbelievable, a sweet start but very much an adult fairy story.

Poor read

The worst book I have listened to seemed to take a long time to get going and not a realistic story line.
