It is a good book, but very sad.

The amount of work that went into this book is quite amazing. There is an extensive section of sources that lead you on to more information. The book itself I found a little dry. The sections on the government apologies were detailed and probably will appeal to those with a personal or historical connection more so than they did to me. I wanted to read more about Marjorie, to have her story fleshed out a bit more. I did appreciate the many photographs included.
