Hi Friends,

This month I’m busy working on my next English historical novel, Finding Her Way Home. The story focuses on the McAllister Family and what happens when the three youngest children are sent to Canada as British Home Children without the knowledge or permission of their mother. From 1869 – 1939 more than 100,000 poor and orphaned children were emigrated to Canada. A few were adopted, but most became indentured household servants and farm workers. We’re talking about children, many who were much too young to be expected to do that kind of work. The research has been intense and heartrending, but it’s a story that needs to be told. These children should never be forgotten. If you’d like a peek at the characters and setting, visit my Pinterest board.

    Hi Carrie,

    I already subscribe & thanks for your generous giveaway! Reading that so many of the Home Children were not adopted and seeing the photo of that little girl hurts. And that some were sent without parents knowing?! Shocking. England did such a good job with the kids sent out of London, hearing about this totally surprised me. I (think) look forward to reading the story you weave.
