Introduction by Linda Cracknell

Poor, crowded and dirty, but full of life and excitement, the Lane is the only home Janie MacVean has ever known. It is a place where, despite everything, Janie is happy. But when the Cruelty Man arrives, bringing with him the threat of the dreaded ‘home’ – the orphanage that is every child’s nightmare – her contented childhood may be coming to an end.

A gritty and moving portrayal of a young girl facing hardship and deprivation, The White Bird Passes is an autobiographical novel written with warmth, humour and insight.
