The Cocoa Girls by Annie Doyle

Annie Doyle has brought history to life in The Cocoa Girls!

Well-written and heartbreaking! When their mother dies, the lives of two women are forever changed-and the life of little Evie is shattered.

Dinah and Margaret have grown up with a wonderful mother who has done her best to educate her daughters with life-long skills as trained singers and dancers. And she has brought France to them through her stories of growing up. Their mother tries to maintain their lifestyle after her dear 'Enry passed away, but his demanding and ruthless sister continues to raise their rent with no compassion.

When their mother dies from cancer, Dinah and Margaret find out they are responsible for the debts owed to their aunt. And she has made a plan for them to pay it back. Their biggest fear is the workhouse. And, what will happen to Margaret's sweet young daughter, Evie?

The Cocoa Girls takes the reader on the heartbreaking journey of Dinah—saving every penny she can from her job as a scullery maid to pay their aunt and mail money for her niece's care.

Evie-sent away to work as a young, young girl and not understanding why or where her mamma is.

And Margaret, who left in the middle of the night with visions of being famous.

Follow their journey and their mother's journey through her journal entries that guide them. Will Dinah be able to save Evie? Will Evie survive? Will Margaret become famous? And will she return to get Evie?

A great book-your heart will feel this book!
