An objective opinion, 31 Dec 2007
It's interesting and sad to read reviews from family members who challenge the content of this book, and unsurprising that they rate the book so poorly.
I would agree with one review below which states that the book is actually not that well written, but growing up in an Irish household, it's very much written in the style of the spoken stories I grew up with.
If you're interested in reading the shocking story of the hidden Ireland, where unwanted children where discarded by society, treated so appallingly by those entrusted with their welfare and a subsequent lifelong battle for recognition from their family, then you will enjoy this book.
