NOVEL - Belonging [a British Home Child novel]
By Sandra Joyce

Softcover... 23.95 (C$)
This book is historical fiction based on stories of immigrant children to Canada.

A follow up to the author's earlier book The Street Arab - the Story of a British Home Child, the heart-rending story of Robbie James continues in Joyce's second book, Belonging. Now grown, Robbie struggles to find his place in a world that has committed him to otherness. Based on a true story, Belonging is a tribute to the author's father and the other 100,000 children like him.

It is a story of real life injustice and hardships faced by these children sent to Canada by Great Britain as indentured farm workers and domestics. Repeatedly unsettled and stigmatized by the communities meant to foster them, the Home Children went on to spend their lives searching for a place where they belonged. A part of history that must be acknowledged. A story that needs to be told.
