In February 1945, following the sudden death of their beloved mother, Helen Best, aged 9, and her sister Laura, 7, were uprooted from their happy family home on Merasheen Island, Placentia Bay, and brought to St. John’s where they were placed in Belvedere Orphanage. “It was,” writes Helen, “the beginning of a long and lonely life where silence took the place of laughter, austerity took the place of freedom, and punishment took the place of love.” Two Girls From the Bay is a story you won’t soon forget.
