About the Book

The skeleton of a young girl is found beneath the cement basement floor in an abandoned Victorian in Toronto. On duty is Detective Constable Michael Crestwood who contacts forensic anthropologist Dr. Palmer Richardson to assist in the investigation. What they uncover is the story of a six year old Cree girl, stolen from her family, warehoused in a government run facility and then forgotten. 

In a story with ties to current headlines, THROWAWAY CHILD explores the injustice foisted upon two girls imprisoned in a mid-twentieth century residential school and the tragedy that results from one girl’s need to find a home.
