From Ragged London to the Garden of Eden
by Jean Jardine Miller
On the death of their mother in a nineteenth century London slum, the Denton children are separated. The younger two are adopted by their uncle, who takes the older brother and sister to Annie Macpherson's House of Industry in Spitalfields. Tom and Annie go to Canada with one of the first parties of immigrant children destined to work on the farms of the new Dominion.
