Behind the accounts, one senses the spirit of the struggles and challenges faced by the Home's supporters, determined people whose inner strength proved equal to the task of sharing and caring for each other. The text is generously illustrated with photographs and enriched by the poetry of George Elliott Clarke, written especially for thebook." - from the rear. Chapters : 1. Beginnings: 1605 - 1908. 2.
