The Fortune Maker by Catherine Norton – Our Review
The Fortune Maker is a mesmerising tale of danger and deceit, set in London in 1913. 12-year-old Maud Mulligan knows she can’t rely on the pricey Seers that tell the future to rich families to help her, or her father, get out of the slums. But that doesn’t stop one of those very rich families snatching her away to save them from financial ruin after the Royal Seer sees her in his vision. Soon, Maud is swept into a world of suffragettes, scientists and magic, where nothing is as it seems. This historical fiction with a touch of fantasy will have you on the edge of your seat from page one. It is perfect for fans of action and mystery stories.
