Victorian Country Children Summary

Victorian Country Children: Four True Life Stories by Sallie Purkis

True-life experiences of five Victorian children beautifully presented as historical biographies. Through hours of research, Sallie Purkis has uncovered these original histories and retells them for the first time, with historical photographs and large colour illustrations. In this book we find out about Richard who lived on a boat on the Leeds to Liverpool canal and Sarah who was so poor she lived in a workhouse in Cambridgeshire with her sister and mother. We can read about Walter, the son of a farm labourer, who worked on the fields in Somerset from a very young age and about wealthy twins Tommy and Eva who lived in a big country house in Cornwall.
