Both Poignant and Inspiring, The Box House is the Story of a Child's Struggle to Transcend Abuse and Poverty

A story that will stay with you long after you've read the last page.

In "The Box House", author Brigid Marlin tells the story of Cassie, a young girl she met more than fifty years ago in a small English town. Although badly neglected and abused by her mother, Cassie is a strong and courageous child who is determined to make a proper home for her younger siblings. The box house referenced in the title is literally that — a house made of cardboard boxes. It's a place where Cassie and her siblings could find comfort and refuge from their real lives, if only for a few hours at a time. "The Box House" is a story told through Cassie's eyes and voice, and will bring tears and smiles to readers as they experience both her pain and courage.

"The Box House" was published by Boissevain Books with Infinity Publishing and is available on in both print and ebook formats.
