Candlemas Eve: A Thing of Beauty II
by Edward Bloor
Candlemas Eve begins in 1880 in the north of England, in the smoke and fire of the Industrial Revolution. Jack and Celeste Potter find themselves orphaned in a world that is unforgiving to the poor and the friendless. As a result, they embark on separate journeys--Jack emigrating to America to make his fortune, and Celeste staying behind to survive as best she can.
