Promises of Home: Stories of Canada's British Home Children

by Rose McCormick Brandon

(Faculty recommendation)
This collection of stories explores the variety of experiences of 100,000 `waifs and strays' from Great Britain and Ireland who were removed from the UK to Canada and thousands more to Australia and other parts of the British Empire during the 19th and 20th centuries (1869-1939). These children, some of the girls as young as 4 years of age, were brought to Canada to work on farms and in homes as indentured servants.
