Product description

A heart-tugging saga full of secrets and surprises from the blockbusting Jacqueline Wilson, introducing a feisty heroine who lives in historical times.

In London, 1876, tiny baby Hetty Feather is abandoned at the Foundling Hospital. She is sent to live in the countryside with two foster brothers, Jem and Gideon, helping in the fields and playing imaginary games. Together the three sneak off to the travelling circus, where Hetty is mesmerised by the show – especially by Madame Adeline and her performing horses! As Hetty grows up, facing hardships and tough times, she becomes ever more determined to trace her missing mother. Could she really be the wonderful Madame Adeline? Or will the truth be even more surprising? Victorian life and circus spirit are brilliantly evoked in this best-loved series; one of Jacqueline Wilson’s finest moments.

“The story gripped me completely.” Kate Kellaway, Guardian
