Title: A beautiful poignant little big book
Content: I first heard of this book on a radio programme where Liz read from some of her other poems. I loved her accent, her integrity, and immediately bought The Home Child. I read it in one sitting, knowing I will read it again and again for the emotion and the imagery. It is just beautiful.

Title: This is excellent and evocative.
Content: This poetic brew tells the story better than plain narrative ever could. Again, Berry uses colloquial language to great effect.

Title: Excellent
Content: I am no fan of poetry, let alone a book written in verse. This however piqued my interest as it was exposing another example of the wonderful way in which this country deals with those it sees as being a drain on the country. It's bad enough to suggest this sort of deportation in the current climate, but we have form when it comes to deporting our own citizens, particularly children who have no means of fighting back or resisting. For me it was yet another heartrending example of how we have exported our "problems" for someone else to deal with. Having got that rant out of the way, this book actually spoke to me in a way I find puzzling. I felt deeply for the child, who we are initially told, "emigrated" to Canada, as if it was their choice. Separated from her remaining family and the country in which she was born, and to which she should have had every expectation of caring for her in the situation she found herself in, through no fault of her own, she was shamelessly deported with no checks on where she found herself. She was sent to be an "indentured servant", which is a very polite description for what we should realise was a form of slavery. I read this in a single sitting as I was so captivated by what was imagined was happening to this child. It imagines a somewhat loveless, joyless existence in a foreign land, being looked down upon by the population who themselves where transplanted immigrants, but who had, however had some choice in the matter of their existence. It fits in well with the experiences of those children, some still very much alive, who again, we shamelessly deported to various parts of the world where the British held sway. An apology by politicians does not hold any water as it was politicians who made the decisions in the first place. Thank you to the author who does eventually reveal that what we had here was not "emigration" but forcible deportation.

Title: Truly a masterpeice
Content: THe author has created a new way of telling a story. Very powerful; very word economical; very short sentences, no parentheses; not one sentence, not one word one could 'edit' out. It is immensely sad - to be read in one sitting with a large whisky to hand. Yes, a masterpiece.

Title: Hard impact, superb writing.
Content: This is another major triumph for the author. Engrossing, written so that you form your own opinion of this dreadful event in our history. The writing is first-class, not a word out of place, surprising and with impact. It brings it all back home.

Title: Astonishingly good
Content: Beautifully written unsurprisingly, but also, what a deeply compelling and moving narrative that builds through the poems over the course of the book. I read the whole thing through yesterday and cannot wait to return to it again today.
