A pair of orphan sisters, Nancy and Plum, make their way through a year of ups and downs at Mrs. Monday’s Boarding Home for Children. This book begins on one Christmas Eve and ends on the next, making it a perfect Christmas read-aloud. Nancy and Plum are charming heroines who work to make the best of hard situations, with humorous and heartwarming results. Great for a family read-aloud, but the story will appeal mostly to girls ages 7-11.
