Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Baby Laundry for Unmarried Mothers (Paperback)I actually bought this book as it was recommended with another purchase and I was intrigued to find out more.
The book is based around a young woman's struggles when she falls pregnant and realises her only option is to keep the pregnancy a secret by attending a convent and have the baby adopted.
This book had me hooked and I really felt for the author for the horrors she had to go through. It really makes you think about all the things that we take for granted now and how it was such a different world back then.
This book is definitely worth a read both for the insight into life in the 60s for young women and also for the author's story.
