A tiny girl is abandoned on a ship headed for Australia in 1913. She arrives completely alone with nothing but a small suitcase containing a few clothes and a single book — a beautiful volume of fairy tales. She is taken in by the dockmaster and his wife and raised as their own. On her twenty-first birthday they tell her the truth, and with her sense of self shattered and with very little to go on, "Nell" sets out on a journey to England to try to trace her story, to fi nd her real identity.
The Woman In White by Wilkie Collins: I highly recommend this large tome. It's worth your time. I love a mystery that I am unable to unravel until the author allows. And this kept me rapt until the last.
