poor house souls

By Rebecca Edwards All Rights Reserved ©

Other

souls

A home for the unwanted, where they were treated like slaves. This was the home of the poorest of the poor, where those who have no where to go, go. Some are criminals, others are just those down on their luck and fell into hand times.

They all work from dawn to dust with out a break, made to do back breaking jobs, given little food and even less money, this was the life of the poor house residents of the Victorian er, a time of great leaps and pounds in technology but terrible time for those who where left behind in the path of progress.

The men and women working until they drop, breaking stones and making items to be sold. The children doing dangerous jobs where they could get seriously hurt or even killed trying to do what they are told.

Many people know about what goes on in those terrible places but none try to even help the poor people who have no choose but to go to those dark rat invested places. The rich laugh at the misfortune of those below them and do not give them a second glance.

All those who enter hope to one day leave and never look back, to be able to stand on their own two feet and make something of them selves but they all know that they will never be free, the owners will never let them go, for they signed they selves over to them when they entered.

Will the pain of captivity ever go a way, will the poor souls of those trapped ever be freed. No one knows, but they continue to hope and dream that one theirs lives will change and the freedom that they long for will one day be in fact a reality.

Sandra Leigh: Sadly, the book left me wanting more. There are only 5 chapters and I want more! It is easily as good as The White Queen and The Other Boleyn Girl. I cannot wait for this one to be finished.

aeonleeann: Love how the story flowed through and how mysterious she was until the end. Loved how she tries to stay away from others but seamed to get drawn into others ether thru friendship, thru bargains or oaths. Would love to read the next book when it comes out. For this story in my eyes has great promi...

Sammi Chan: THIS WAS AMAZING!!! My favorite part of this story was the slow build of Merlin and Arthur's relationship. Their relationship was rlly nicely fleshed out and so good :) The way that you handled the magic reveal was super enjoyable. I rlly liked the switching POVs. Good!Mordred was cute and I'm rl...

dapharoah69: I gotta hand it to you. This was a great read from start to finish. I am a big fan of witches, thanks to Anne Rice. The characters really reeled me in from the very first few chapters. You make reading fun.

Jacklyn Reynolds: As a mother of an Autistic child, I know how hard it can be. I love how beautiful you made everything. That's all I can say. I need to grab a tissue.

littlebite22: This made me think. About the world around me, about what I think of others. We rarely get to see or hear what others think, and this is such a great example of not judging a book by its cover. Also very well written.

Animeviewer: It is one of the best stories I've ever read. This story will have you riding a roller coaster of emotions and nearly dying to know what happens next.You will get very attached to the characters and in my case I relate well with some of their very traumatic or emotional experiences, Just Juliet f...

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

ank1983: I really enjoyed this story and I read through it quickly. I found it very entertaining and some of your scenes were very well written and descriptive. Every time a chapter ended I couldn't wait to start the next chapter. What girl hasn't fantasized over a cute teacher at school?! The story did...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...
