Summary
For the pioneers of the Windrush generation, Britain was 'the Mother Country'. They made the long journey across the sea, expecting to find a place where they would be welcomed with open arms; a land in which they would be free to build a new life, eight thousand miles away from home. MOTHER COUNTRY explores the reality of their experiences, and those of their children and grandchildren, spanning more than seventy years and through twenty-two unique real-life stories: their joys and sorrows, as well as heartbreaking anecdotes of racism amidst a determination to hold onto their culture despite the hostility they faced. However, there is also wit, humour, and a quiet dignity from the mix of celebrities and everyday people who have contributed their stories to this remarkable book
