Read before you see the film,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Philomena: The true story of a mother and the son she had to give away (film tie-in edition) (Kindle Edition)
The book is so different to the film......you have to read it first.
Its an in depth account of what happened to Philomena and at the same time to put things into perspective what else is happening in the world.
We rely so much on technology and google searches these days but this book hits home that only 30 years ago if you wanted to find out something you had to go to the library or make a trip to the place in person.
If only she and her son had had todays technology I feel sure they would have found each other.
Its so sad.........but well worth reading
