The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-selling Jacqueline Wilson’s enchantingly feisty Victorian heroine Hetty Feather is back in a new adventure. How Hetty continues to fight to belong to her own ‘family’ and against the constraints of her life as a foundling and the limited opportunities it affords her as she goes into service is full of drama and emotion. Hetty will never be satisfied until she can fulfil all her dreams and ambitions in a Victorian world vividly brought to life. Click here for the first adventure.
Sapphire Battersea by Jacqueline Wilson
This is a fascinating, funny and moving Victorian-era novel featuring Hetty Feather. Hetty Feather is a Foundling Hospital girl and was given her name when she was left there as a baby by her mother. But she always longed to be called Sapphire, after her sapphire-blue eyes. When she is reunited with her mother, she hopes her new name, Sapphire Battersea, will also mean a new life! But life doesn't always go as planned...Follow the twists and turns of Hetty's adventure as she goes out to work as a maid for a wealthy man. She longs to be reunited with her childhood sweetheart Jem - but also finds a new sweetheart, Bertie the butcher's boy, who whisks her away from her household chores to experience the delights of the funfair! But Hetty's life may also take a darker path. Can she cope with the trials ahead?
"Hetty Feather is the most compelling tale Wilson has told." The Times
"Has a rare gift for writing lightly and amusingly about emotional issues." Bookseller"
