Fate has not been kind to Gemma Hardy. Orphaned by the age of ten, neglected by a bitter and cruel aunt, sent to a boarding school where she was both servant and student, young Gemma seemed destined for a life of hardship and loneliness. Yet her bright spirit burns strong. Fiercely intelligent, singularly determined, Gemma overcomes each challenge and setback, growing stronger and more certain of her path. Now an independent young woman with dreams of the future, she accepts a position as an au pair on the remote and beautiful Orkney Islands. But Gemma's biggest trial is about to begin...a journey of passion and betrayal, secrets and lies, redemption and discovery will lead her to a life she's never dreamed.

Lovely story, cleaner than a PG13 movie although not completely suitable for my 9 year-old.

This is a complex story of a girl from Iceland orphaned at a young age and taken in by a loving uncle in Scotland. But when her uncle dies, her aunt and cousins turn on her and send her to labor in a boarding school. The book chronicles her running away from one situation after another while she learns about herself and to be more understanding of others. Its quite interesting and I found compelled to finish it.

Remake of Jane Eyre that was an enjoyable rendition of the story taking place instead in the late 1950's.
