The Foundling Stacey Halls Blog Tour Review.

London, 1754. Six years after leaving her illegitimate daughter Clara at London’s Foundling Hospital, Bess Bright returns to reclaim the child she has never known.

Dreading the worst – that Clara has died in care – the last thing she expects to hear is that her daughter has already been reclaimed – by her.

Her life is turned upside down as she tries to find out who has taken her little girl – and why.

My historical fiction tastes are a bit eclectic- not my favourite genre but I always seem to find the gems and The Foundling is certainly that – a richly layered, beautifully descriptive novel that holds you in its grip throughout.

A story of motherhood with a literary twist, Stacey Halls sets her scenes with intuitive grace then creates characters you care about and a story that is both haunting and utterly riveting.

Old London comes to life and the practices there are intriguingly compelling, overall this is a novel to savour. I thought it was brilliant.

Highly Recommended.
