Sample Book Insights:
#1 I was five years old when I was taken into care, to live in a Catholic children’s home called Nazareth House in Glasgow. I was reunited with my two older sisters. I missed the easy affection of my grandparents’ home.
#2 I loved being in the home. I preferred the predictability and safety of it to the uncertainty and chaos of my mother’s home. I was happy there, day to day, until I was taken away at age seven.
#3 I loved to pull threads out of the pink bedspread that covered my blankets. I was nervous about going to school, but I was well fed and well dressed, so I was happy.
#4 I had a difficult time in school, and was bullied. I spent most of my time reading, and would often hide myself away in the still of the bedroom. Jock was a fierce competitor with my father, and would often argue with him.
