Radio and television broadcaster Myf Warhurst is determined to learn the truth about a ‘handshake adoption’ in her paternal line.
Myf is humbled and proud to learn that although her ancestor’s early life was characterised by institutions and, later in life, separation from her own children, she was finally able to find some contentment and security.
Myf then delves into her mother’s family to discover two bold, adventurous ancestors – her 3x great grandfather who was a vocalist and entertainer during the gold rush, and his daughter, a pioneering entrepreneur who outsmarted her greedy second husband.
