Larch Hill is the only home Blue knows. She arrived there just a few days old, wrapped in a blue blanket. Her one hope is to find her mother or father and have a family of her own.

Fostered out several times, Blue finds it difficult to fit in. Is there no one out there who really wants her? No one who can really love her?

Blue must put up with the orphanage, with the distant and strict care of the nuns. She does have her friends, Mary and Jessie and Molly and Lil, but they're not family. They're not enough.

In her heart, Blue is desperate to find out who she really is. The closed file in stern Sister Regina's office holds the secret of her identity. And that is forbidden territory ...

Product Description:

The orphanage is the only home Blue has ever known. She is desperate to find out who she really is. The closed file in stern Sister Regina's office holds the secret of her identity. And that is forbidden territory.

Review:

'there is a sense of moderation rather than sentimentality in Conlon-McKenna's writing, in so much as, the misfortunes and joys that befall Blue are very much within the realms of reality and probability. Set in the late 1960's, young modern readers should find its treatment of universal themes such as friendship, hope and acceptance relevant as well as poignant.' (Deborah Buley www.writeaway.org.uk)

'the details of the girls' daily lives and the characters of Blue, Sister Monica and Jimmy Mooney catch and sustain the reader's interest' (Lesley Martin School Librarian)
