Orphaned cat burglar Nyssa Glass intends to outwit her rotten fate.

“Adopted” by her incarcerated uncle’s gang of thieves, she breaks into homes and picks pockets to repay her family debt and one day buy her freedom from their dark enterprise. Mechanically adept and determined, Nyssa longs to attend Miss Pratchett’s School for Mechanically Minded Maids and make an honest life she can take pride in.

She wasn’t made to steal things. She was made to create and fix them.

However, before she can make her escape, the head of the gang taps her for a new assignment, one her conscience cannot bear. Nyssa is faced with a heartrending decision: sacrifice everything or become the very thing she’s desperate to escape.

Letter of Love by Amanda Tero

Title: Letter of Love

Author: Amanda Tero

Series: Orphan Journeys, #2

Genre: Christian Historical Fiction

Age-Range: middle grade/young adult

Era: 1902

Setting: United States

Publisher: Amanda Tero

Source: author

Rating: 4.5/5 stars. Not my favorite plotline (I know the author had to do it, but WHY?!!!), but it was still marvelous.

Content: 1/5. It’s perfectly clean. There is some description of sickness and poverty … but it didn’t disturb me in the least. It wasn’t detailed at all.
