If  you  have  heard  of  the  Dickens  novel  The  Old  Curiosity  Shop  and 
remember  Nell  Trent,  the  beautiful  and  virtuous  young  girl  of  "not  quite 
fourteen",  an  orphan,  who  lived  with  her  maternal  grandfather  in  his  shop 
of  odds  and  ends,  then  you  will  understand  that  these  stories  take  place  in 
the  same  time  period  as  the  book  and  have  the  same  lovable  and  quirky 
characters.  Not  written  by  Dickens,  of  course,  they  try  and  succeed  in  my 
mind  to  carry  on  our  enjoyment  of  hearing  of  the  escapades  of  the  people 
and  England  we  love.
