The Lost Sisters

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Orpha Buchanan and Peg Meriweather had a very different start in life. Orpha surrounded by wealth and riches, Peg dumped on a doorstep as a baby with nothing to her name but a scruffy blanket and tatty clothes. But one thing they had in common from their very first day, was a mother who despised them and wished them gone.

Hortense Buchanan wasn't made to be a mother. Bullied herself when she was a child, she continues the tradition with her own children, loving money and finery more than her own flesh and blood. When her daughter Orpha runs away from home, Hortense celebrates, never once worrying for her safety.

Circumstances bring Orpha and Peg together, and before long they're as close as family, making their way in the hustle and bustle of a booming Birmingham and the smoke-filled Black Country. But before long, Hortense realises that her daughter stands in the way of the one thing she really cares about, and the bitter legacy of the Buchanans looks set to destroy them all...

Customer Reviews

Interesting historical novel!

The Lost Sisters takes readers back to 1897 in the Black Country. Orpha Buchanan is being abused by her stepmother, but she is afraid to tell her loving father. Orpha ends up tossed out of her home and made to find her own way. Luckily, Orpha ends up being taken in by Ezzie Lucas and his mum, Edna on their boat "The Sunshine". We follow Orpha as she finds her way in the world and discovers an unexpected bonus.

The Lost Sisters is well-written and interesting. It could use some editing. I found the story to be a little too long. I felt the book needed an epilogue to show readers how everyone turned out (it would have been satisfying). There are nice, strong female characters and a good mystery. The author captured the era (even mentions Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee) and place. It was interesting to discover more about canal people. Overall, I enjoyed The Lost Sisters and look forward to reading more books by this author. My rating for The Lost Sisters is 4 out of 5 stars.
