Product description

Raised in north Western Australia on the Beagle Bay mission and at the Holy Child Orphanage in Broome during and after World War II, Lockyer shares the moving story of her childhood and those of many others who were forcibly removed from their families. An honest assessment of an upbringing spent under policies urging cultural assimilation, she nonetheless recalls a strong mixture of Australian cultures, traditions, and religion. Told with candor and humor, this memoir captures the universal resilience of children with breathtaking sincerity.
