Présentation de l'éditeur

When she fell pregnant in London in 1938, Jean knew that she couldn’t keep her baby. The unmarried daughter of an elder in the Church of Scotland, she would shame her family if she returned to the north in such a condition. Scared and alone in a city on the brink of war, she begged the Foundling Hospital to give her baby the start in life that she could not. The institution, which had been providing care for deserted infants since the eighteenth century, allowed Jean to nurse her son for nine weeks, leaving her heartbroken when the time came to let him go. But little Tom knew nothing of her love as he grew up in the Foundling Hospital – which, during years of the Second World War, was more like a prison than a children’s home. Locked in and subject to public canings and the sadistic whims of the older boys, there was no one to give him a hug, no one to wipe away his tears. A true story of desertion and neglect, this is also a moving account of survival from one of the very last foundlings. It stands as a testament to the love that ultimately led a family back together.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent story. 22 mai 2014

Very well written story of life at The Foundling Hospital where I was raised 4 years earlier, Tom Mackenzie did in no way exaggerate, he wrote from his heart and I whilst I found it most interesting, I believe non foundlings will be shocked at the treatment foundlings had to suffer. A very good read...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Something about this book 11 avril 2014

This is a very well written account of one persons life from birth to being passed into the childcare system then on to foster care and not being able to see or even know who his real mother was. It's not a system that is still in place today and it worked very well. Not the kindest place to be but better than a lot of the alternatives. He does finally find his birth mother but it's the journey that makes the story.
The system used in the UK is different from what is used in the US so it might be of value and interest to give it a read. It is so wonderfully written that you find yourself wanting to know more and more. Not a particularly long book but certainly an entertaining one and a look back into the past.
Maybe I'm just old but I loved reading it. I highly recommend this book and I highly commend Mr. Mackenzie for writing it.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A true story, and I got to see more ... 7 août 2014

A true story, and I got to see more of an insight, because I have a friend who was at the same foundling home. We need to learn from the past to know what is most important in taking care of children.
