BelongingBook - 2014
Belonging is the continuation of the story of Robbie, the former British Home Child as he joins the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corp and is sent overseas to fight in the Second World War, followed later by Annie who returns to England as a nurse. The story of their off-again on-again relationship is overshadowed by the intense fighting in Algeria and Italy and the bombing of London. The excitement, fear and battles of the War are recaptured by meticulous research and quick-paced action. The book finishes in Canada with Robbie as an old man with two generations of descendants to bear witness to his long journey from Scotland to Canada as a British Home Child and then proud Canadian veteran.
