(This book cannot be returned.)
Millie was only six years old when she had to leave her home in England and board a ship to Canada. She was one of the British Home Children, orphans who were sent to work as domestic servants in a new country. She didn't know what to expect, or if she would ever see her friends or family again.

Now, many years later, Millie is telling her granddaughter Bella about her life story. She shares her memories of the voyage, the farm, the people she met, and the adventures she had. She also reveals the secrets she kept, the challenges she faced, and the dreams she pursued. Through Millie's eyes, Bella learns about a forgotten chapter of history, and a remarkable journey of courage and resilience.

This is a captivating and inspiring book for young readers, based on the true experiences of the British Home Children who came to Canada between 1869 and 1939. It is a tale of hope, love, and family that will touch your heart.
