AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Hilly and the other children in her English orphanage are shipped to Australia with the promise of sunshine, plenty of food, and nice uncles and aunties. The reality turns out to be very different. Hilly and her little brother Egg are separated, and she finds herself in another orphanage where life is harsh and often cruel. When the first Royal Tour of Australia is announced, Hilly concocts a daring plan to meet Her Majesty and enlist her help in finding Egg. (Libraries Australia)
