Author(s): David Hill
Written from the testimony of ex-Fairbridge children, many of them interviewed by the author, this is a sad, personal story of loss and longing but also one of short-sightedness and brutality - both moving and horrifying.
During his remarkable career, DAVID HILL has been Chairman, then Managing Director of the ABC, Chairman of the Australian Football Association, Chief Executive and Director of the State Rail Authority NSW and Chairman of Sydney Water Corporation and Chairman of CREATE - a national organisation responsible for representing the interests of young people and children in institutional care. He is the author of one previous book, the bestselling THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN (Random House, 2007). He lives in Sydney.
