There was a hum
of excitement.
Flags flickered
in the breeze as Maggie's heart danced with delight.
`This is a very
special day!' her mother said.

Maggie
holds tight to her mother as they await the long anticipated apology to show a
willingness to reconcile the past for future generations. In the excitement of
the crowd Maggie loses touch of her mother's hand as is lost.

In a time `long
ago and not so long ago' children were taken from their parents, their `sorrow
echoing across the land'.

As
the Prime Minister's speech unfolds Maggie is reunited with her mother. But the
faces and memories of the stolen generation are all around them.

Two
stories entwine in this captivating retelling of the momentous day when the
then Prime Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd, acknowledged the sorrows of past
and said `Sorry' to the generation of children who were taken from their homes.

The
book includes a foreword from Lee Joachim; Chair of Rumbalara Aboriginal
Cooperative and Director of Research and Development for Yorta Yorta Nation
Aboriginal Corporation.
