Jae-Dee Survives the Home of Many Mothers (Jae-Dee Collier)

Meet the author of Jae-Dee Survives the Home of Many Mothers. A fictional story based on real-life experiences of an abandoned child raised in the Goodwood Orphanage by Catholic nuns. The story is told from the voice of an inner child and the author, Jae-Dee Collier, calls attention to the effects of this childhood trauma, and shares how she developed skills to overcome those challenges. Jae-Dee Survives the Home of Many Mothers captures the cultural history of postwar families and offers reflections of the South Australian social welfare system during the 1950s to mid-1960s.
