    Sinopsis de: "Listen to the Child"

    It’s 1875 and London’s East End heaves with children who work as prostitutes, hawkers, beggars and thieves. Constance rescues as many as she can but feels overwhelmed. Then a solution is offered that sounds perfect – Canada, with its wide green plains, has farmers who need help, while their wives want housemaids. Shipping children to this land of plenty offers them a future far from the temptations of London’s overcrowded streets. Widow, Mary Trupper, is wary, but the promise of good food and an education for her children is strong.Are the fields green? Is the food plentiful? For some, yes. For others, the harsh winters reflect the welcome.Based on the true story of the British Home Children who were shipped to Canada in the 1870s.Regular spikes into top Kindle sales ranking when mentioned in British Home Children historical research groups and blogs.
