The Unfortunates by Laurie Graham
In a very good condition with some creasing to the spine. See photos for more details.
What hope is there for Poppy Minkel? She has kinky hair, out-sticking ears, too yellow a neck and an appetite for fun, and her mother Dora despairs of ever finding her a husband, despite the Minkel’s Mustard fortune that seasons these dubious attractions.
When Daddy disappears, Poppy’s tendency to the unusual is quietly allowed to flourish. World War I opens new horizons.
With never a moment of self-doubt, she invents her own extraordinary life in step with the unfolding century.
