The Forgotten Daughter (1933) is a work of historic fiction by Caroline Snedeker. The tale is set in ancient Rome

and is woven around the events in the life of ChloŽ, the daughter of a Roman noble (the noble, Laevinus has

been tricked into believing that ChloŽ died at birth). Unknown to Laevinus, ChloŽ is being raised as the daughter

of a slave, Melissa. Through various events, ChloŽ is reunited with her father and the treachery involved in

deceiving both father and child is uncovered with ChloŽ reclaiming her noble heritage and true love.

 

Snedeker won a Newbery Honor for The Forgotten Daughter in 1934.

 

Lathrop's suite of illustrations includes one colour illustration and further eight well-conceived monotone

illustrations.

When presented on Greeting Cards, these images are prepared as tipped-on plates - in hommage to the hand-crafted

approach typical of prestige illustrated publications produced in the early decades of the 20th Century.

 

Hand-finishing is used to replicate the visual appearance of a tipped-on plate and the images are presented on

White card stock with an accompanying envelope. We have left the cards blank so that you may write your own

personal message.
