From the cover: “Deprived and abused as a child, Jeanette fought her way out of her uneducated background to become a nurse. Working in the East End of London as a District Nurse, a chance encounter with a five-year-old shoplifter was to revolutionise her life. Jeanette decided to help this young child whose deprivation was akin to her own and who the education authority had decided was uneducable. Jeanette thought otherwise and within two years, the boy was happily matching his contemporaries in a normal school. From that beginning Jeanette became foster mother to over thirty children. Her reputation spread amongst the various welfare services, and they began asking her to take in severely emotionally disturbed children in dire need of care and counselling and shelter, and for whom no other suitable alternatives were available.”
