4.0 out of 5 stars Life in a " home" 31 Dec. 2013
By Jean 73
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading this account as my mother born 1910 and her 3 brothers went into a children's home when the family fell on hard times too she was probably only 2 years old then. She was also called Annie. Fortunately for her she was fostered out at some time with an elderly couple whose own children had already grown up. She attended a local school and didn't meet her mother until she was about 13 or 14 years old when she met her coming home from school. Her mother was riding along in a horse and trap and someone said " that's your mother" and she didn't believe them. Her 3 brothers stayed at the home until they were about 14 I believe. One went into the navy ( he was drowned when ship was sunk in First World War aged only 15 or 16) another brother spent his whole life in the regular army. The last brother became a lorry driver. Annie's only memory was of the maggoty cheese which she always gave to her brothers. So I would imagine she was quite young when she left the home as she had no other memories of that time. Her foster parents were very kind to her and their own children became lifelong friends. Much later in life she discovered she had 2 younger half sisters as her mother had married again at a later date. When Annie became a pensioner at 60 she discovered she had 2 names her second name was Louisa and she had never known

It was a good + informative insight into the Cottage Homes. I would have liked to hear from a few more "Home Children" and their respective lives. More please.

5.0 out of 5 stars Personal experience. 23 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having had similar experiences myself,in particular the Cottage Homes at Eastry near Sandwich Kent,I can appreciate the story line and they give some pleasant and not so pleasant memories of some 65 years plus ago. But I do not recall any of the terrible abuse that has been bought the the public's notice during the last few years,both in the press and other publications,though I must admit the regime was very strict.
