The Laundry Girl by Faye Bohling

The Laundry Girl is the story of Faye Bohling, born to a single mother in 1936 in Perth.

Faye’s mother, Amy, was a beautiful but troubled woman and Faye was often left with informal foster carers and remote family members. Like all children, Faye loves her mother unconditionally, and just cannot understand why she is abruptly and unceremoniously left at these various places. At the age of ten, Faye found herself at the Home of the Good Shepherd. The Home of the Good Shepherd was a cruel and forbidding place, where, rather than being schooled by the nuns, Faye ends up working in the laundry. She stayed there for two long and lonely years…

Light refreshments provided.
