Barnaby Rudge by Charles Dickens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I read this in a Ravelry book group and we all enjoyed it immensely. It was set in the time of the Gordon Riots of 1780. Barnaby is simple minded and lives with his mother. He gets drawn into the Gordon Riots by bad companions who use him and then abandon him. As is usual with Dickens, there are several other plots going on at the same time and they eventually connect. It is just a delightful book and well worth the time it takes to read it.
