Nuttie's Father

Forty-year-old Alwyn Egremont seduces Alice, an 18-year-old nursery governess, in his brother's employ.

Scared he will lose his inheritance for doing so, Alwyn denies the affair and abandons her and their unborn daughter, Nuttie.

When the supposedly dead Alwyn Egremont appears on Alice’s doorstep some 17 years later, Nuttie’s life is changed forever.

Taken from her childhood home, she must adapt to a new life. But can Nuttie overcome her mother’s blind devotion to a destructive Alwyn and her own resentment of her absent father?

‘Nuttie’s Father’ (1885) is a romantic novel that will delight any reader interested in Victorian literature.

Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823 - 1901) was a prolific and popular English novelist, biographer, editor, historian, essayist, and journalist. She is most famous for her novels which include ‘Heartsease’, ‘The Daisy Chain’, ‘The Young Stepmother’, and the commercially successful ‘The Heir of Redclyffe’ (1853).

Yonge was also a founder and editor for forty years of ‘The Monthly Packet’ magazine, while her book, ‘History of Christian Names’, is considered to be the first serious attempt at recording the subject. Profits from her books were often donated to charitable causes.
