Summary Little Amy Dorrit was born in debtor's prison, the youngest child of William Dorrit, an aristocrat by birth who has been an inmate of the Marshalsea for twenty years. Earning meager wages as a seamstress to support her family, Amy is befriended by her employer's son, Arthur, who wants to help. When Arthur uncovers an unknown inheritance due to Mr. Dorrit, the family is finally freed from prison. Newly wealthy, they travel to Italy, where the proud Mr. Dorrit instructs his children to sever old connections and learn the ways of the upper class. But leaving their past behind proves not to be so easy. Meanwhile, their benefactor, Arthur, falls on hard times when he becomes the victim of a gigantic financial fraud. When he next meets Little Dorrit, their places are reversed: Arthur is imprisoned in the Marshalsea, too ashamed of his position to declare his love. But to Little Dorrit, love has always transcended class.
