Emily's Fortune by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

Eight year old Emily Wiggin never knew her father because he was killed in a steamboat accident when she was very young. She and her mother lived in the room behind the kitchen in Miss Nash's home where Mrs. Wiggin worked as a maid. Then a tragic buggy accident takes the life of Miss Nash and her mother. When it is revealed that Emily has inherited 10 million dollars everyone wants to find her. Miss Catchum from the Catchum Child-Catching Service believes that Emily should live with her only blood relative, Uncle Victor but Emily wants to live with her sweet Aunt Hilda. Will she make it to her aunt's home or will Miss Catchum nab her, or will her evil Uncle Victor find her first? I recommend this book which is a sometimes funny, often intense story.
