Street Child

Author: Berlie Doherty
Publisher: HarperCollins

This novel really does bring history to life. The reader gains insight into living and working conditions for poor children in the 1860s. Orphan Jim Jarvis makes his own way in life until he becomes the child who prompts Doctor Barnardo to set up homes for destitute children. Particularly memorable is the episode where Jim works shovelling coal for a waterman.

Companion volume: Far From Home: The Sisters of Street Child (9780007578825), HarperCollins £6.99
