Orphanage Survivors: A True Story of St John’s, Thurgoona, by Howard Jones deals with a Sisters of Mercy orphanage near Albury that existed from 1882 to 1978. The book includes a chapter Stolen from Britain, about a group of 22 girl migrants who were sent to this orphanage in 1950. The book is based largely on interviews with the former female residents.
