Book descriptionEdit

"Sunday, July 10th, 1892
I did not think I would sleep as the fire came closer and closer, consuming all in its path, but I must have dozed off finally because suddenly it was sunrise, and Papa had found us! I flew into his arms, all cares forgotten. His clothes smelled of smoke. He hugged me very close while Sarah and Alfie rushed to join me. Papa held us as if we were all he had in the world. As I soon discovered, that was close to the truth. Everything is gone. Papa's premises–the shop, the workshops, the wharves–all of it, burnt to ash. Our house, Papa says, is no more than a smoking pit in the ground, all our fine and beautiful things consumed.
