Colm is on the run, determined to escape from the cruelties of Bindoon Boys’ Home. He strikes up an unexpected friendship with Billy Dare and his dog Rusty, and together they travel from the goldfields of Kalgoorlie to the rugged north. Whether they’re working along the Dog Fence, eluding the police or confronting a wild boar, they’re a team. When Bill’s life is at risk, it’s up to Colm to go in search of the mysterious Blue Delaney and lay to rest the ghosts that haunt them both.

This action packed story, set in the 1950s, continues the richly detailed historical quartet that began with Bridie’s Fire and Becoming Billy Dare.

Australia has a long history of child migration schemes. Since early convict days, thousands of orphaned children have been sent to Australia from all around the world. Many of them were of Irish descent. After World War II, thousands of children were taken from orphanages in the UK and Malta and shipped to Australia, often against their will. These children are sometimes referred to as the ‘forgotten Australians’. They were sent to institutions all over the country. Many suffered unspeakable hardship and cruelty. Their stories are an important part of Australia’s complex history.

A Prayer for Blue Delaney is also available in an abridged English language edition that is widely used in secondary schools in Germany.
