Books Info:

Homechild free pdf Between 1860 and 1930 an officially sanctioned child migration from Britain to Canada took place. During that time over 80,000 children, unaccompanied by their parents or siblings, and often separated from them forever, were placed in factories and farms where, more often than not, they were exploited as indentured child laborers.This is a play about family secrets and the many forms of love, longing, and aspiration they conceal. And it's about loss. It takes a piece of history from a dark corner of a country's past and dramatizes its tragic impact through the generations of one family."Homechild" is set in Glengarry County in eastern Ontario, where both of Joan MacLeod's parents were raised on farms with "home children," just a few miles apart.
