Meet Letty

A girl like me in a time gone by...

It's 1841. Letty is saying goodbye to the older sister she loves so much. Then there's a mix-up on the docks. Letty finds herself sailing for a new life in Australia. Will Letty find friends and a new home? 

Meet Letty is the first of four stories Alison Lloyd is writing about a young settler who has to make her own way in the colony of New South Wales in 1841.  

Letty's story is part of a series for young Australian readers called 'Our Australian Girl'. You can meet the other Australian Girls and read their adventures too.
