Willoughby – The Story of an Empire’s Greatest Shame
Authored by A. E. Conners
This is a story of courage, love and tragedy. Never will you forget the fictitious town of Willoughby, the wonderful people who lived there… or a man called John Reynolds and the women who loved him.
In the trenches of France, during WW1, Australian soldier John Reynolds makes a suicidal attempt to save the life of British Army officer James Mannington.
Little did John Reynolds realize that his single act of courage would change the lives of so many and take him on a journey halfway around the world to find his son and expose England’s greatest shame.
Until as recently as the late 1960’s, approximately 150,000 British children were shipped to Australia, Canada and other parts of the British Colonies. The result provided homes for unwanted children, replenished those colonies with British citizens and provided a workforce… of children.
