The amazing story of Moth, a twelve-year-old girl living in the tenements of lower Manhattan in 1871, surviving the horrors of living on the streets in a time when a shockingly high number of people believed the cure for syphilis was sex with a virgin. A story of innocence, naïveté, awakening, and self-discovery, all taking place within one year of a little girl's life. Based on the true story of Ami McKay's great-grandmother, Dr. Sadie, who managed the brave accomplishment of opening a hospital for Women and Children in a time when no one else cared.
I write because
There is nothing
quite so bittersweet
as reading the final line
of your favourite books.
