Born in a shabby tenement in Victorian London, young Tom Bedlam is employed stoking the furnaces in a massive porcelain factory- he is son to a father he has never met, and sibling to a baby who vanished at birth.But in spite of these disadvantages,MoreBorn in a shabby tenement in Victorian London, young Tom Bedlam is employed stoking the furnaces in a massive porcelain factory- he is son to a father he has never met, and sibling to a baby who vanished at birth.But in spite of these disadvantages, he is a positive spirit, cunning in his pursuit of love, unflinchingly loyal to his friends, and possessed of a deep, passionate soul.

More than anything, he wishes to bring the loosestrands of his estranged family together.After Toms mother dies, a mysterious family benefactor appears who offers to pay for the boys education. For a factory urchin this is goodluck indeed, and Tom is whisked away to an exclusive private boarding school called Hammer Hall.

The school is a crucible of variously privileged, predatory, meek, and noble boys, and although Tom gathers crucial cluesthere about his lost brother, he finds himself caught between warring forces and makes a Faustian pact that will haunt his adult life.As Tom becomes a man, his quest assumes grander proportions, asearch for his lost innocence but an attempt to create the family he dreamed of in childhood.

His experiences will challenge his decency and force him to weigh his character against the pitfalls of loyalty, patriotism, love, and familial duty.Tom Bedlam shows how small deeds in childhood can resonate for a lifetime, and how the bonds of family ultimately prevail against the devastating march ofprogress and human folly.

Most of all, it is a journey with a good friend. Charming, whimsical, passionate, and funny-theres no better companion than TomBedlam. From the Hardcover edition.
