A harrowing but must read story.,
This review is from: Suffer The Little Children: The True Story Of An Abused Convent Upbringing (Hardcover)
This is one of the most powerful and disturbing stories I have read. The author tells her story as though she is back in the convent, as a child. Somehow she manages to describe the terrible brutality of the convent without a sense of bitterness. The sense of pain you feel, for the child, might make some want to put the book down, but by then I was so completely hooked that this was not an option. In fact, I found the most harrowing chapters to be some of the most compelling. Also, despite the horrors of the convent, there is humour, adventure and a sense of hope.
Few books have awakened such deep feeling within me. I would thoroughly recommend this book, but be sure to keep it away from younger reader. You don't want you 13- year-old daughter to pick it up, this is defiantly for adults only.

I am wondering why kev has deleted a comment he made on my review. I am glad my name was removed from the book. I just can't believe lots of things that were in it but to say she wasn't educated when she sat next to me in class is a disgrace and to find out that she didn't write the book herself, her ghost writer did, why did she have to lie.

I am so glad my name was removed from this book. I just could not believe the things she said didn't happen when she knows they did. To say she wasn't educated when she sat next to me in class is a disgrace and to find out she didn't write the book herself, her ghost writer did it so why so many lies. Good luck to those who have a story to tell but the truth is always best.
