From the publisher

Hetty is a spirited intellectual girl sustained by English literature in her struggles against a brutish home life.  When she discovers that she was adopted she runs away in search of her real parents.  Finding shelter in a Birmingham boarding house, she meets eccentric lodgers and experiences a wider world of mass demonstrations, ethics and music hall.

“This book, generally so witty, so vivacious, and so original is a gem”     Francis King, The Spectator
