The author left a marriage where she suffered from emotional battering, and lost her eldest son for over a year.
Medical authorities said she should be put away. Child welfare authorities said they knew best how to look after her children.
It was an uphill battle but June Allen won out; she abducted her children from the state welfare system.
“The author writes an open letter to her three children explaining why she wasn’t able to search for her eldest boy after he’d been abducted by his father. June returned to her home country with her two other children. Her anxiety about her lost child aged seven years was such that she was committed to a psychiatric institution. The book is about June’s following long struggle in finding accommodation for herself and her children.”
