The Trouble with Polly Brown: The Polly Brown Trilogy, Book Two
In this second novel of the Polly Brown trilogy, we find Polly a few years older, and still enduring continual trials and tribulations at the hands of her ruthless guardians, uncaring teachers, and extremely cruel foster siblings. Although Polly is slow to trust a new friend--William, the new boy at school--she all too soon finds herself sharing the details of her unbelievable past adventures. When a shocking accusation finds her in more trouble than ever, Polly begins to lose her inner strength and self-confidence. With the help of some new friends and a few larger-than-life old friends--who create absolute pandemonium while attempting to rescue Polly as well as a few other troubled children--Polly finds her way back to a place where innocent, mistreated people are shown the love and kindness that they deserve. Will Polly Brown be able to regain her hope and confidence, and reinforce her belief in what she knows, deep down, to be true?
"The Trouble with Polly Brown tugs at the emotional heartstrings, you want to laugh, cry and love Polly throughout. A desperate girl in a desperate world, dealing with many issues, bullying included, she is dramatically rescued by an old friend. The ongoing painful world of Polly Brown is beautifully written from the heart."
About the Author
Tricia Bennett was raised in children’s homes in England, which served as the main inspiration behind The Trouble with Polly Brown, the second book in her Polly Brown trilogy. She and her husband John spent many years fostering children, in addition to raising their own three children. They moved to America nearly five years ago, and opened their own English Tearoom called Polly’s Pantry near the Villages in Wildwood, Florida. The tearoom was recently featured on a television cookery program called Back of the House, and Tricia has also been interviewed on a number of chat shows. Tricia loves children, and hosts Princess Parties at her Tearoom, where she administers the “Princess Test” to ensure that her young guests are real princesses--and not a single young princess has failed so far! Through her books, speaking and television appearances, Tricia uses her humor and honesty to reach into lives by giving fresh hope as well as renewed vision and purpose. Her future books will include the final installment of her Polly Brown trilogy, as well as a cookbook, two humorous books, “Don’t Take the Same Plane As Me!” and “Why I Left Home Before the Kids!” as well as her autobiography.
