  • Overview
    Coram Boy is a children's novel. The story follows a wide range of characters, from the rich Alexander Ashbrook to Toby, a young boy saved from an African slave ship, as their lives become closely involved with an authentic episode of British social history. It is an epic adventure which sheds light on a hidden part of the eighteenth century, child cruelty. The innovative work of the Foundling Hospital continues today and is carried out by the charity that still bears the founder's name, Coram.
