Amelia Elliot was half way down the stairs to the school dining hall when her life changed forever. Before the gong sounded for tea she was an ordinary schoolgirl looking forward to her thirteenth birthday and worrying about her Latin exam. After the gong, she was an orphan sent hurtling into a shadowy world of subterfuge, treachery and unlikely friendship. In a fight to reclaim the mysterious family chest left to her by her Tudor ancestor Matilda, she begins a thrilling journey which will lead her from glittering ballrooms to the slums of the Rookeries, from society séances to the lime-lit stages of the London music hall. The second novel in the A Girl for All Time® series, Amelia's Inheritance tells the story of 13-year old orphan Amelia Elliot growing up in Victorian London.
