A stolen past, a search for the truth, two lives changed forever.

Born out of wedlock in Dublin in 1937, Phyllis grew up in a tough, church run orphanage. She thought by fulfilling her dream to become a nurse in England, her life might change, but her loveless childhood predisposed a loveless marriage and things began to spiral out of control for her and for her daughter, Sally. Looking for the answers to why both their lives went so spectacularly wrong, led Sally to ask questions about the real identity of her mother: “Who was she? Why was she abandoned... I needed to find answers before it was too late.”

After a mission lasting nearly a decade of searching archives and contacting various organisations, charities and anyone who would listen, Sally finally uncovered the truth.

About the Author

Sally Herbert was born in 1962 and grew up in Surrey, before moving to Sussex. She lives with her partner Phil, and elderly cat, The Big Boy, and works for an animal charity. After nearly a decade of searching for her long-lost family, she likes nothing better than to make trips to Ireland for reunions. When she is not doing that, she enjoys going for walks on The South Downs and researching her ever expanding family tree.
