Thursday’s Child

Margaret Thursday was named after the day she was found on the church steps as a baby. But she isn’t really an orphan — each year a bag of gold coins is left with her guardians to pay for her keep. However, when Margaret is eleven years old, the money suddenly stops and her guardians have no choice but to send her away to an orphanage.

The orphanage is worse than they could have imagined. The children are poorly treated and barely fed, and fearless Margaret soon makes herself the enemy of the evil matron who runs it. Vowing to protect her new friends, Peter and Horatio, Margaret plans their daring escape.... but she’ll have to outwit Matron at every turn. Set in turn-of-the-century England, this thrilling, classic children’s adventure from the beloved author of Ballet Shoes — first published in 1970 — stars a courageous heroine who refuses to waver in her belief in herself.
