The flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey
dies, Gemma realizes she is sort of a "Cinderella", with the appropriate
stepsisters. Gemma is sent to a boarding school - Claypoole - but as a working girl aka unpaid servant. Gemmas' life changes after the school goes bankrupt and she is working as a nanny, and falls in love.
Further adventures await! This novel takes place in the 60's & 70's in Scotland, and is a modern day Jane Eyre. I loved it, and now I'm re-reading Jane Eyre, just to compare the two.
