Sapphire Battersea PDF ✓ Hardcover


Sapphire Battersea I read Hetty Feather last week after a recommendation from one of the girls at my Diving group She also told me to read Sapphire Battersea, but at the time I didn t realise they were connected When I finished Hetty Feather I was disappointed that the story hadn t finished but then I looked up this one and found it was the second one in what will be a trilogy, so of course I had to request it to read.I started this in my lunch break today, I had the evening in so when I got home from work I sat I read Hetty Feather last week after a recommendation from one of the girls at my Diving group She also told me to read Sapphire Battersea, but at the time I didn t realise they were connected When I finished Hetty Feather I was disappointed that the story hadn t finished but then I looked up this one and found it was the second one in what will be a trilogy, so of course I had to request it to read.I started this in my lunch break today, I had the evening in so when I got home from work I sat down to continue and read for just an hour, well 2 hours later I had finished the entire book I just couldn t make myself put it down I was swept up in Hetty s world and couldn t leave.This book carries on right where book 1 finishes, Hetty is now 14 and getting ready to leave the Children s Foundling hospital, fully trained and ready to go into work as a servant, she doesn t want the life of a servant but she knows it s the only way to stay close to her mother However just before she leaves her mother is discovered and sent away, alone again Hetty fears what will become of her.She is set up in a good position as a house maid to a well known author As a budding writer herself Hetty has ideas of grandeur, sure he will see her talent and take her under his wing, but life is never that simple for Hetty.When things go wrong she is on her own again, her life is a confusion and she must deal with conflicted love, loss and self discovery In this book you meet Bertie the Butchers boy, although he can seem a little bit simple, he has a great heart and a good sense of humour and as he lights up Hetty s world, he seems to light up the page too, I couldn t help but like him.I though Jem would featurein this book but apart from a quick glimpse and some letters he is still absent, i am hoping he will come back in book 3, but i m also sort of hoping that he has changed and Hetty doesn t end up with him, but that s just personal preference The setting is well researched and clear, I could visualize the entire place throughout.A thoroughly enjoyable book by Wilson, I know I am really too old for these books now, but there is a certain charm about them that makes them a pleasure to read Some of her work is a bit samey and predictable but this one has a freshness to it.Definitely worth a read When I realised that this novel was the second part of a trilogy I was a little concerned that, having not read any Wilson before and therefore not having read the first novel, I would be a little lost However, that was not the case at all Wilson appears to have developed the characters in this novel completely independently of the first book so you can easily read it as a stand alone.Although older than the target market, I really liked this book Hetty Feather Sapphire Battersby is a really When I realised that this novel was the second part of a

Feather Sapphire Battersby is a really lovely character who is always up to mischief This novel follows her journey after leaving the Foundling Hospital where she was left by her mother as a child.Hetty has many adventures in this novel, from working as a maid for an author, to performing in a freak show and visiting a seance, and meets some brilliant charaters along the way I particularly loved Bertie, who Hetty spends many an interesting Sunday afternoon with, and thought he was a really lovely character and the interaction between the two were very funny and endearing.Full of twists and turns, highs and very lows, this novel is really good, and I think any young girl reading this would really enjoy it and be drawn into the world of Hetty Feather I got the first book, Hetty Feather on my 14th birthday and absolutely fell in love with it I adored Hetty s relationship with her foster brother Jem and dearly hoped that she would find him again in Sapphire Battersea I was kinda disappointed BUT I was quite happy with Bertie, he was a hilarious character and frankly quite fun on practising a Cockney accent on I really can t wait until the 3rd and final book Emerald Star I just have a feeling that it s going to be a fantastic end to the seri I got the first book, Hetty Feather on my 14th birthday and absolutely fell in love with it I adored Hetty s

Jacqueline Wilson Books coming Out x If you fell in love with Hetty Feather in her first book, do not despair you can follow her further adventures as she grows up in two sequels, Sapphire Battersea
