Going Home Summary

Going Home by Val Wood

For Amelia and her brothers and sisters, the grim past which their mother Emily had endured seemed very far away. A striking and independent young woman, learning to be a teacher in York, Amelia was looking for a purpose in life, and especially to becoming acquainted with the two young gentlemen who had come all the way from Australia to meet her family. Ralph Hawkins, bringing with him his friend Jack - a handsome half-aboriginal Australian - arrived in Yorkshire looking for his roots. He found Amelia, whose tangled family history was inextricably bound up with his. Ralph Hawkins's whole world had been turned upside down when he learned that he had been adopted by the couple he had always called his parents. In his quest to find his real mother, he uncovered some cruel and unpleasant truths, before at last realising where his true destiny lay.
