Flo, a bright young child migrant, found her youth blighted as her 'training' was only for menial domestic work. By her mid-teens, she was working 200 miles from Perth on a remote farmstead and treated harshly. Later, despite a failed marriage and with three children she made a life but could not resolve her feelings of injustice at having unnecessarily lost her birth family and country. She wrote her lifestory as therapy. "Flo" demonstrates what can be achieved through determination. The book includes a chapter researched by Editor Anne Bott which details what Fairbridge management in England knew about the inappropriate treatment of children at Fairbridge, Pinjarra, when Flo was young. But no action was taken then. The research gives historic validity to Flo's life story.
