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! Hetty’s happiness is threatened when she is returned to the Foundling Hospital. The life of awful uniforms and terrible food is a real struggle. But now Hetty finally has the chance to track down her missing mother. Could she really be the wonderful Madame Adeline? Or will the truth be even more surprising? A heart-tugging story of secrets and surprises from blockbuster author Jacqueline Wilson, introducing a feisty heroine who lives in historical times.
