What readers are saying about Nobody's Child:
'A rags-to-riches story, but with a good underlying tale of spite and greed. A little bit of everything and a gritty ending - I couldn't put it down'
'A really good read, a bit like a mini-series on TV. I especially liked the way it kept me guessing until the very end'
