Oxford Reading Tree TreeTops Reflect: Oxford Level 18: Hand and Foot
An historical story about keeping quiet and telling the truth, and what it really means to be a good person. In Georgian England, in a very fine house, live two quite different girls. Marianne is always careful and quiet, whereas Gravity the chambermaid is clumsy and cheerful. But Gravity is suddenly sent away, and being cheerful is a lot trickier when you have to sleep in a cowshed or sing for your supper. Will Gravity ever find a proper home again?
