Review
Oranges and Sunshine tells the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham who uncovered one of the most significant scandals of recent times; the deportation of thousands of children from the United Kingdom to Australia. Almost single-handedly, and against overwhelming odds, Margaret reunited thousands of families, brought authorities to account and drew worldwide attention to an extraordinary miscarriage of justice. Children as young as four had been told that their parents were dead, and been sent to children's homes on the other side of the world. They were promised oranges and sunshine; many got hard labour and an institutional life.
