In 1952 Susan and her brother were given away by their mother and subsequently sent to Australia under the Child Migrant Scheme. Susan’s first book Goodbye, Mummy Darling described her journey through life and her constant search for reasons why.

Does a return trip to Australia, compensation from the Australian Government, vital information from the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa, Canada, an invitation to the House of Commons – AND a personal apology from Prime Minister Mr Gordon Brown finally allow Susan the forgiveness and understanding she craves?

Holding Back the Tears follows Susan’s incredible life and her continued search for answers and information about her tormented childhood. As you read you will see there are many coincidences after the death of her husband which drive her on to achieve her ultimate goal.

About the Author

Susan Tickner was born in Cheltenham. At the age of three she was fostered out to several institutions in the UK. Then finally at the age of nine, she was sent to Australia as a child migrant.
Writing her life story Goodbye, Mummy Darling has given Susan the therapy she needed, and although sadness has dominated her life, bitterness does not. Her four children will always be her rock.
Since the recent death of her beloved husband, Susan spends most of her spare time writing poetry and walking her Jack Russell dogs, Holly and Jessie.
