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

My thoughts:

I really enjoy historical fiction so when I saw the description for this book I couldn't wait to read it. 

Charity is an interesting character who is well written and it was great to see her grow up throughout this book and develop as a character. Joe was so likeable and dependable. I loved the interactions between Joe and Charity. From the beginning their friendship was both engaging and sweet. Liz Harris has written Charity in loving detail and I really felt her emotions as if she was someone I actually knew.

The story grabbed my attention straight away, I did think there was a slight dip in my interest at one point. However it was only for maybe a chapter or so as the rest of the book kept moving at a steady pace. Liz Harris has written a detailed and interesting story that made me feel as if I was right there with the characters. There were some serious issues that were dealt with in this book but they were handled very well. If you are like me you will feel a range of emotions whilst reading this story. Mainly anger at the way Charity is treated but also hope for a better future. 


I really enjoyed The Lost Girl, the characters had depth and the story was told beautifully!

Four and a half stars from me!
