NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ● From the bestselling author of The Sisterhood, a riveting novel about Anne Sullivan, the often forgotten teacher behind Helen Keller

1866. Nine-year-old Annie Sullivan finds herself in a forgotten almshouse in Massachussets. She has no one in the world: her mother died, her father left, and her beloved brother just died in her arms. How could she gather the strength to keep living? With both her eyes infected by the devastating Trachoma disease, she had not seen in years. When she hears of a special school for the blind, she is determined to get there, even if it would mean the abuse of Mr. Marsh, the manager of the almshouse.

"Breathlessly exciting and heartbreaking by turns-an emotional and historical page-turner."-Huffington Post

"A compelling, page-turning narrative . . . Re-examines the life of history's greatest teacher from a fresh, psychological point of view." -Kirkus Reviews

"Painstakingly researched, beautifully hewn, compulsively readable . . . Not to be missed."-Library Journal
