Thursday’s Child

By Noel Streatfeild



She was born a nobody, but she’s determined to be somebody.


Margaret Thursday was named after the day she was found on the church steps as a baby.  Each year a bag of gold coins is left for her keep, but when the money suddenly stops, Margaret’s guardians are forced to send her away to a terrible orphanage.

Vowing to protect her new friends, Peter and Horatio, Margaret plans their daring escape…but she’ll have to outwit the evil matron at every turn.
