'Your mother is dead and in a box with a lid on. You're not wanted,' shouted the woman, stripping her of her clothes. Not quite four years old, Gloria was forcibly separated from baby brother Kevin, and entered the often brutal, but sometimes caring world of Rothwell Children's Home. Via the fostering process, Gloria spends weekends with a couple and, through them, meets two maiden 'aunts' who would remain true friends. Childhood years are filled with amazing twists and turns in her search for Kevin, ending with her mental breakdown. Incarcerated in an old Victorian-style institution, she is visited by two unfamiliar relatives, with whom she is forced to live. Aged twenty-one, Gloria starts independent living. Re-establishing her friendship with the two 'aunts', they reveal her father's identity. True love enters her life as she marries Robert Urquhart who continues to support her in her quest to find Kevin. This powerful memoir sheds light on what life was like in a 1950s children's home and follows the author in her compelling journey.
