When Sandy Reid was taken into care he was just one year old. Little did his mother know that she would never see him again. Never to Return is the extraordinary true story of Sandy Reid and his big sister Maggie and what happened to them when they were taken away from their parents and their way of life. It was the middle of winter when the authorities swooped on the travellers` woodland camp, determined to take the youngest children into care and give them a better life. But it didn`t work out that way. Denied any access to his parents, Sandy was to spend the rest of his childhood moving from disinterested foster parents to children`s homes and finally into the clutches of the notorious `Uncle Dave` who systematically abused the children in his care. This is the shocking story of how a child`s life was destroyed and of a stolen generation, snatched in the night and forbidden from seeing their families. It`s also the story of how one boy endured terrible hardship and abuse and how he survived against all odds.
