The Lost Girl

What if you were trapped between two cultures?



Life is tough in 1870s Wyoming. But it’s tougher still when you’re a girl who looks Chinese but speaks like an American.


Orphaned as a baby and taken in by an American family, Charity Walker knows this only too well. The mounting tensions between the new Chinese immigrants and the locals in the mining town of Carter see her shunned by both communities.


When Charity’s one friend, Joe, leaves town, she finds herself isolated. However, in his absence, a new friendship with the only other Chinese girl in Carter makes her feel like she finally belongs somewhere.


But, for a lost girl like Charity, finding a place to call home was never going to be that easy …

My Review

If you want to be carried away to the wide, sweeping plains of Wyoming during the gold rush then this book will take you there. Liz Harris manages to capture what life must have been like at the time through the eyes of Charity, a Chinese girl who is brought up as an American and Joe's family who work in the mine. When tensions rise between the two communities, Charity is caught in the middle. She tries to assimilate into the Chinese community but feels she doesn't belong there yet she cannot follow her heart either. I really felt as if I had been transported back in time; wonderful descriptions of the scenery, fantastic characters and a romance with real obstacles to overcome.

When reading all the reviews I just can not wait to read this for myself. I adore stories of hardship and how they unfold and hopefully have a good ending.
