Publisher Description:
The French find a tot and print the story. A British detective claims the boy as coming from Switzerland but belonging to a British subject. Swiss agents deny it. A major cover-up by the British ensues.

This boy is put away for the world to forget. He survives under brutality, detailing how boys are circumcised without anesthesia or the cure for crying in the dormitories or the treatment for toothaches or the punishment for talking and so many other cruel, inhumane remedies.

When WWI breaks out the orphans go to fight. Froggie spends years at sea. Post WWI England is an incredible disenchantment with unemployment, poor wages, poor health care and the Influenza epidemic that crosses the oceans to America.

Fate intervenes when he jumps ship to later meet "gentle" Josie, a would-be nun. She is his mentor in becoming a citizen, calling upon Ellis Island, FBI and others to discover his real identity with all the ugly truths. They uncover secrets he and the world are not supposed to know. Their courageous quest will inspire readers to realize that hope is a priceless commodity worth the effort.
