The Iron Peacock

The Iron Peacock by Mary Stetson Clarke.
An historical FICTION for youth.

I read this book several years ago, probably 8 years ago?, to my two youngest children.

It is a book of special interest because it is set in Hammersmith at the Iron Works there and features a teenage indentured servant who came with her father as a Scottish POW. It has been a while since I have read it so I am curious to get another copy and read it now to compare to what I know about the POWs today. I wasn’t even aware of the POWs eight years ago.

I recommend reading it to add a depth of understanding to the times and the men and women of that community.
