Nobody's Girl by Hector Malot

Nobody's Girl by Hector Malot

This edition of Nobody's Girl, a classic novel by Hector. We follow the story of a young orphan named Perinne, who - despite poverty and misfortune - maintains her nature as a motivated, moral and resourceful young girl. Only through her wit and intelligence is Perinne able to escape the grim, oppressive working conditions of her friends inside the industrialised city. However, rather than simply leave her friends behind Perinne uses her influential personality to persuade a factory owner to better his employees' conditions and rights as workers. He assents to her requests, and this event makes the daring Perinne something of a hero in the community. The later part of the book chronicles Perinne's search for her lost family, a quest which is as exciting as it is suspenseful as we wonder: will the bold youngster discover her long lost relatives? This book was originally published in 1893 in French under the title 'En Famille', or 'In the Family'.
