About this item
For Trisha Gourgaud, life growing up in 50s Australia was a mix of love for her French father and love tinged with uncertainty for her Irish mother. A blissful time was cut short when one day she was taken by the police to the local children's home, Nazareth House, a home for neglected and abandoned children. This event meant she would never see her mother again and rarely see her father. Daughters of Nazareth by Trisha Hughes is an autobiography of touching warmth which tells the story of the confused and sometimes frightened girl who became an independent and confident woman, but who carried with her the scars and the loneliness borne of the belief that her parents had abandoned her. But a surprise lay in store for Trisha, and in the telling of her change of fortune, the author provides the reader with a moving and inspired story of discovery.
