I love the Samantha books and so does my little sister. This is an extra that we just happened to have.
Times change for Samatha when she moves to New York City to live with her Uncle Gard and Aunt Cornelia. They change for Nellie, Samantha's servant friend in Mount Bedford too. But Nellie's changes aren't as happy as Samantha's, and Nellie has to find work again. When her find disappears, Samantha thinks Nellie is lost forever. But after a long and scary search, Samantha finds Nellie in a New York orphanage. The orphanage is not a good palce for Nellie so the girls plan a daring escape.
