Inspiring and Heart-warming
on 7 February 2013
I've read a few books on the laundries in Ireland and have felt utterly sad for these poor girls, however "For the love of my mother" It brought home how recent these terrible things happened. Above all I was left inspired by Bridie's spirit and determination to overcome unjust imprisonment.
This is a beautifully-written and deeply moving book - It is made all the more heart-warming by the fact that it is a homage from a son to a wonderful mother. It is a tear-jerker, certainly, but also a wonderfully heart-warming and uplifting book - a book about the power of hope. Definitely a must read.
