Separated from her brothers and sisters, the 'tiny' Mary was sent as a domestic to a farm near Innerkip, Ontario. This is Mary's story - a recreation of her life set in Victorian rural Ontario, from the time of the tragedy that split her family to her eventual escape from a life of drudgery. Robbed of her childhood years but buoyed by an inner resolve and an indomitable spirit, Mary Janeway reveals the tragic events surrounding this period of Canadian history -- the Home Children. Mary Janeway was godmother to author Mary ( Hewson ) Pettit."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
