I really liked the first Hetty Feather book so I just HAD to buy this, and let's just say I defo didn't waste my money! This book is amazing! The storyline is very well written and the cover is beautiful! The only thing is when you take of the amazingly decorated dust cover there is a rather dull cover underneath, no pictures or anything , but that is seriously the only flaw. The story had me hooked, I finished it in a day, despite the fact that it's a fairly big book. If you like Jacqueline Wilson etc, I reccomend you buy this phenominal book!

This book, shows how Hetty (Sapphire) can be sad, angry, happy and excited. I thought that parts of the book was really sad, which I didn't really expect. If you wanted to buy this, but haven't read Hetty Feather, I don't really think it matters, as it describes bits of her past etc. I thought that the book was just the right lenght. Compared to some of the other reviews, I don't mind waiting for the third book, as I think it will be worth the wait. I loved Hetty Feather and I love this. Even if you aren't an avid Jacqueline Wilson fan, like I am you should still love and enjoy this book. Overall this was a great read, and I would recommend it to about 9-13 year olds.Can't wait for the next one!! :)

I bought this for my 8 year old daughter as she had been watching the TV series and really enjoyed it. I had also purchased some time ago the first book in the trilogy as an e-book which she had read and thoroughly enjoyed. It's quite a grown up book, but my daughter read the whole book within about a week.

She thoroughly enjoyed this one too and I have since purchased the the 3rd book in the triology, which is has yet to read as it's a present.

If your child has watched and enjoyed the TV series, there is a good chance they will enjoy reading this set of books also; and as a parent I am happy that it is advancing her reading skills too.

The book was great and I really enjoyed it.It is a fine sequel to Hetty Feather [and there is still one more in the series to come!].It is yet another of the amazing Jacqueline Wilson's work.The book was very exciting and I could not put it down. I recommend it to any 8 to 13 year old.You can enjoy this book even if you have not read Hetty Feather. I look forward to the next one. Samantha.

Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
What an interesting children's book. It is not at all like the kind of literature I read when I was in Jackie Wilson's target audience, which is more years ago than I care to remember.

I knew that she was an extremely popular author but I also understood that she was someone who wrote about quite "pertinent" topics which rather made me gasp. Not at all like C.S. Lewis or Enid Blyton. I was therefore interested in what this CD reading might yield.

Sapphire Battersea is the second of a trilogy concerning Hetty Feather, a foundling girl who grows up in large orphanage at the turn of the century. In it, Jackie Wilson wraps nothing up and has clearly done her research. She makes it perfectly clear how certain people viewed children born out of wedlock and that Hetty would be destined for a life of service where she would have few rights and be treated and considered in the same way as we might regard a washing machine. If she protested, then she would be considered ungrateful.

Hetty's mother appears in the book. Firstly, she is found secretly working at the foundling hospital and she returns later on also. Hetty manages to make her way through the deprivations her upbringing to enter service under the watchful eye of Mrs. Brisket who works for Mr. Buchanan, a nasty monkey-like man whom I personally hated! During her time there, she acquires a sweetheart in the shape of the butcher's boy and also ends up attending a séance! I thought that the latter made unusual material for a children's story but it was dealt with well and such things were a part of Edwardian life.

The tale continues at a considerable pace and there is an excellent portrayal of life at the time.

Format: Audio CD Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this as a present for a ten year old, but I know that some of Jacqueline Wilson's material can be very hard hitting. I need not have worried on this score, but the seance and other spiritualist material was not good. I had bought this for a Christian family who would not have been happy with a child listening to this. My biggest concern was how it was handled. It is not like Jaqueline Wilson to throw something in and not explain it or deal with it sensitively. This is the first time I have felt let down by her, so testament to a wonderful writer with excellent skills. She really is splendid. However, wouldn't really recommend this one for the reasons previously outlined.
