Emerald Star is the final story in the Hetty Feather trilogy, following Hetty Feather and Sapphire Battersea. Hetty Feather is a young girl who has gleaming ginger hair, with a temper to match it. When her beloved mother dies, Hetty is once again alone, with no one to look after her. She decides to set off on her greatest challenge yet – the search for her long lost father.
Hetty starts believing she’ll never belong anywhere. Even when she is reunited with her childhood love, Jem, who is also her foster brother, Hetty feels something isn’t right, especially when the mysterious figure from her past makes another unexpected reappearance.
Eventually she realises where she should be – the place she loves visiting, but does she really want to leave her loving foster family behind in search of who she wants to be?
I would recommend this book for girls aged 8-14 years.
I enjoyed this book as it is about Victorians and the beginning of Queen Elizabeth’s reign. I like to read books set in that time.
