From Ragged London to the Garden of Eden

Jean Jardine Miller

Two children desperately try to keep their family together in a slum in Victorian Bromley-by-Bow. On their mother’s death, they are taken to Annie Macpherson’s House of Industry leaving their small sister and baby brother with their only relative. After spending the winter and spring in the relative comfort of Macpherson’s ‘Beehive’, they sail for Canada with one of the early parties of children destined for life on Ontario farms. Apprehensive at first, as the years go by they both come to appreciate the fulfilling lives they are able to attain by taking the opportunities offered to them by the people who take them in.
