Amy: The History Of A Coram Foundling is written by Angie Northey. Amy began life as an orphan in the Coram Foundling Hospital, where she received very little love, but was given a lot of rules and regulations to follow. Amy always tried her best to be respectful and follow the rules and she was a favorite at the Foundling Hospital. On turning fourteen, her time was up at Coram and she was placed in the Bessborough household. Lady Caroline had mental problems that only Amy could keep in check and Amy was immediately assigned to be Lady Caroline's personal maid. Amy and Caroline became close friends (as much as was allowed between the classes) for many years. John and Freddy Bessborough were Caroline’s brothers and became infatuated with Amy, a girl they both thought was beautiful, sweet tempered and caring. Amy found herself loving both brothers which caused many a problem. Caroline married into the Lamb family and the men of this family also found Amy appealing. Conflict caused her to finally leave Lady Caroline and her next stop was as a housekeeper for Lord Byron, a strange man with odd ideas and he too fell in love with Amy. The many predicaments that Amy finds herself in make this story so enticing and I do not want to spoil the story by telling readers much more.
I loved every one of the many pages of Amy: The History Of A Coram Foundling by Angie Northey. Although it took me a while to read, it was certainly well worth my time. I came to love Amy and her story that spanned the late 1780s of London society. Amy: The History Of A Coram Foundling expertly presents the class system, the politics of the day, and the life of one poor girl to perfection. Angie Northey is a brilliant author who made me feel as though I was immersed in the story and was personal friends with all of the characters. I highly recommend you to read this story as soon as possible because it will not disappoint.
