Carrie’s Cough

Carrie’s Cough

This story will make you laugh, then cry, then go back and read it again. Set in the 1880s, it tells the irresistibly poignant true tale of three siblings formed entirely from their intimate letters.

The stoic but fragile Caroline, her wildly optimistic brother Charles, and their sister Florence write with loving humour and optimism as they face the devastating consequences of a characteristically ambitious plan. The illustrations, full of historic detail, are made with the same fond affection and humour and allow us to feel like one of the family.
