    Great read

    Another great book by Julie Hearn. This describes the tale of lowly born Ivy who thanks to her glorious looks is sold to an artist by her poverty stricken grasping family. Much humour ensues in the course of Ivy’s picaresque adventures. A great read for anyone who likes historical books which don’t take themselves too seriously.
