The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey

The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey

Young Gemma Hardy is taken from her native Iceland in the early 1950s to live with relatives in Scotland. She eventually finds herself an unwelcome guest, survives some oppressive years at a strict private school and ultimately finds a job caring for a young girl at the mysterious and remote Blackbird Hall on the Orkney Islands. A more modern telling of the famous Jane Eyre story, People magazine describes this book as “A suspenseful curl-up-by-the-fire romance with a willfully determined protagonist who’s worthy of her literary role model.”

Kathleen Pohlig is owner of Cherry Street Books in Alexandria.
