Description - Voice of the Aspen by Sue Hampton
Motherless, Grace Rutherford grows up in Victorian Hertfordshire with servants for friends, and a loving lawyer father who makes powerful enemies by fighting injustice. When a wild and wordless boy is found bleeding in the woods beyond the grounds, no one knows who he is, where he comes from, or why he is so afraid. Though he learns to read, write, and play the young gentleman, he remains silent and wary, making enemies of his own in a world to which he can never belong. But can he ever go home? And if he does, what is left for him there? "Voice of the Aspen" is an adventure full of drama and emotion. It is the story of two cultures, of friendship beyond language, of courage and the right to be valued for who we are.
