Holding Back the Tears

235 pages4 hours


In 1952 Susan and her brother were given away by their mother and subsequently sent to Australia under the Child Migrant Scheme. Susan’s first book Goodbye, Mummy Darling described her journey through life and her constant search for reasons why.

Does a return trip to Australia, compensation from the Australian Government, vital information from the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa, Canada, an invitation to the House of Commons – AND a personal apology from Prime Minister Mr Gordon Brown finally allow Susan the forgiveness and understanding she craves?

Holding Back the Tears follows Susan’s incredible life and her continued search for answers and information about her tormented childhood. As you read you will see there are many coincidences after the death of her husband which drive her on to achieve her ultimate goal.
