Item: One of two signed copies of Salvation by Vikki Petraitis.
Book Information: In the early 1950s, Rod Braybon’s father had died, leaving his mother with eight children she couldn’t care for. As a ward of the state, Rod was passed from institution to institution until he finally ended up at the notorious Bayswater Boys’ Home run by the Salvation Army. Rod endured years of ill-treatment at the hands of the Salvation Army, then spent a life-time repressing the memories that haunted him.
Finally, Rod decided to speak out. His story created a nation-wide sensation and won a prestigious award for the journalist who broke it.
That Rod survived at all, is nothing short of a miracle. Salvation is a story of courage and the indomitable Aussie spirit.
