(This book cannot be returned.)
Harry was only nine years old when he had to leave his home in England and board a ship to Canada. He was one of the British Home Children, orphans who were sent to work as farm labourers in a new country. He didn't know what to expect, or if he would ever see his friends or family again.

Now, many years later, Harry is telling his grandson Jay about his life story. He shares his memories of the voyage, the farm, the people he met, and the adventures he had. He also reveals the secrets he kept, the challenges he faced, and the dreams he pursued. Through Harry's eyes, Jay 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.
