PHILOMENA

A story from Kate Seredy's own background takes Czechoslovakian Philomena from her country home to seek her fortune in Prague after her Grandmother dies. With Babushka's warm advice in her heart, Philomena sets out with confidence but the first thing she must do requires more than that- she must find her Aunt Liska whose married name Philomena does not know. How her fortunes fail at first as Philomena works about as a servant girl, and how they become bright at last makes a sympathetic story. The author's drawings, pinpointing important scenes, are in her characteristic meticulously detailed outlines.
