Review by Publisher Summary 1

Cécile and her friend Marie-Grace volunteer at an orphanage every week, and Cécile becomes especially close to one little girl named Perrine. But there are so many children who have lost their families to yellow fever, and Cécile wishes she could do more to help them. When she hears that a huge benefit will be held to raise money for all the orphans in New Orleans, she is determined to take part. But what can Cécile give to the orphans to lift their sad hearts and let them know she cares? Includes an illustrated "Looking Back" essay about communities working together to help those in need in the 1800s. This book is the final one in a series of six historical books that weave together the stories of Cécile and Marie-Grace.
