"Write what you know," is an oft-quoted aphorism. My own family history is replete with stories begging to be told. Stories of families torn apart by war, by state-sanctioned programs, stories well hidden in the proverbial family closet, stories of courage, loss, love, and hope.

The Home Boy and his Sister
Two young children, brother and sister, seized from their families in London in 1882 through a program designed to "improve" the lives of impoverished families; face hardship, abuse, and separation. As adults, they embark on an arduous search for each other, to regain their sense of family, battling non-existent communication tools, indifferent bureaucracy, vast wilderness, and their empty hearts. A story of the power of sibling love.
