Walker & Company 2011
Belle, daughter of a Bellfounder, is used to jabs about her name. She is worried about other matters, however. Belle's father was crippled by a bell falling from the steeple it was to be hoisted into. Though he survived the incident, he was unable to work. When a group on pilgrimage to Canterbury goes through town, Belle joins it in hope that it will heal her father's legs. This was a great book I would recommend for its wonderful development of character and great plot twists. Belle is a very relatable character, and her quirks such as counting in threes help develop her relatable nature.
