A Tale of Smarts, Skills, and Survival in East End London
An orphan’s struggle in 19th-century England told in Sarah Brockmann’s first novel.
Dina must use all her wits and skills to survive his often violent keeping as well as stay away from her previous taskmaster.
Cracksman’s Bird by Sarah Brockmann tells the tale of a young orphan girl trying to survive the unforgiving streets of Victorian London. The book was showcased in the 2016 Tucson Festival of Books, which was held last March 12 to 13 at the University of Arizona campus.
Cracksman’s Bird is the story of ten-year-old Dina. She and her friend Kate are taken from an orphanage to labor in a factory. When Kate dies in a siege, Dina flees to the streets of London. Before long, she is picked up by a cracksman, who forces her to work with him. Dina must use all her wits and skills to survive his often violent keeping as well as stay away from her previous taskmaster.
Amazon user Sheila G. Sharp talks about the main character and story, “The issues she faces are still timely today. You will be drawn into the story and find the book hard to put down. More importantly, author Sarah Brockmann reminds us that although several centuries have passed, some things have not changed.”
This book will move readers’ hearts and remind them of the peril that many children still face today.
