Saturday’s Child


Emma Saturday was brought up in a Victorian workhouse. She was forced to run away, but, after many attempts to earn her living by hard work, she was eventually recaptured by Mrs Gould, the cruel workhouse mistress. Emma had pinned all her hopes on her beautiful singing voice but now, back at the workhouse, the future looked very bleak for the hard-working Saturday’s Child.
