Description

A young mother escapes a violent and abusive marriage only to find herself facing poverty and a judgemental world. With little help from the state, sporadic child maintenance payments and employers unsympathetic to a mother's needs, the children's future looks bleak. In desperation she sends her two little girls far away from the north of England to be cared for in one of Bristol's George Muller orphanages. Interspersed with historical facts and letters exchanged between her mother and the orphanage staff, 'ORPHANED WARRIOR' is told from the perspective of younger daughter, Linda. Less than two years old when she was parted from her mother. Linda's story is a fascinating and moving personal account of the everyday realities faced by ordinary people in 1950s and 1960s Britain. Sometimes poignant and at other times humorous, but always filled with hope. 'ORPHANED WARRIOR' is a wonderfully moving story for anyone with an interest in social history.show more
