Hetty Feather: a synopsis

With live music and circus skills, Hetty Feather is an adventure story set in 1876 London. It is the first historical novel by Wilson that makes the trials of 19th century life accessible to school groups.

Roll up and join Hetty on her escape from the Foundling Hospital.

Tremble as she faces Matron Stinking Bottomly. Gasp as she endures a night locked in the attic. Quake as she braves the scary streets of Victorian London, and cheer as she overcomes all in her search to find her real mother and a true family of her own.
