mary berry at home
Mary Janeway, born in Scotland in 1887, came to Canada as a «home child» at a very young age. Separated from her brothers and sisters, the «tiny» Mary was sent as a domestic to a farm near Innerkip, Ontario. This is Mary's story – a recreation of her life set in Victorian rural Ontario, from the time of the tragedy that split her family to her eventual escape from a life of drudgery. Robbed of her childhood years but buoyed by an inner resolve and an indomitable spirit, Mary Janeway reveals the tragic events surrounding this period of Canadian history – the Home Children. Mary Janeway was godmother to author Mary Pettit.
