The book, published in France under the title 'En Famille', follows Nobody's Boy as a companion juvenile story, similarly earning praise as one of the world’s supreme juvenile stories.

Little Perrine is being introduced as she waits at the gates of Paris where she soon is left to fend for herself when her sickly mother dies. On her own she sets out to find her family which had banned her father to an East Indian trading post. Will she find them? Will they welcome her?

The author tells a spellbinding tale while describing the hard life of France’s 19th-century poor, and of the struggle for right choices and character.
