5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!, 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Baby Laundry for Unmarried Mothers (Paperback)
This book for me was such an eye opener, my mum had often told me of when she was young and how different things were regarding being an unmarried mother.... albeit she was born in 1962.

I was totally swept up into this book and devoured it over a weekend - I will certainly hold onto this book and give it another read in the future. You really feel Angela's pain in the way she writes a whole life consumed by guilt and longing.

I think it might even be one to let my daughters read in a few years.. yes, the world has changed but having a baby is so massive "don't let a man near you" might not be strong enough words for a teenager this book certainly should make the message clear of the consequences, it only takes one time.

Fantastic and an absolute must read!!!

I totally agree. My mum was in an unhappy marriage in the 60s and 70s and she said to me single parents just didn't exist. There was no support for unmarried or divorced mothers. Reading this book let me see how lucky I was having my support when I had my first in 1991. I was also unmarried and while my family weren't happy there was never a question I would keep my baby. My daughter has recently had a baby at 17 she is a single mum and has a flat and money. How times have changed in such a few short decades.
