DESCRIPTION:
'We were children caught up in a welfare system that was meant to protect us, but ultimately served only to damage us. Yes, it was a different time, but many of the things that happened to us wouldn't be acceptable in any era. My name is Beverly Wardle-Jackson, and this is my story.' In the Hands of Strangers is the heart-wrenching story of Beverly Wardle-Jackson's stolen childhood. Separated from her brothers and sisters and taken into Child Welfare care at the age of 12, Beverly spends five harrowing years as a New Zealand state ward - being beaten, locked up, and eventually admitted to Porirua Hospital in Wellington for psychiatric treatment. Her trust is betrayed time and again, while she dreams of the day she will finally be reunited with her siblings. But will that day ever come? *** It's impossible not be moved by young Beverly's bravery and resilience as she withstands the harsh treatment meted out to her. Her story is one of courage, hope and a truly unbreakable spirit.
