FANTASTIC - a beautifully writen book,
This review is from: Childhood Interrupted: Growing up under the cruel regime of the Sisters of Mercy (Paperback)
I read this book in 2 days- I could not wait to find out what happened next to Kathleen. What a wonderful woman to have the courage to write this book - how proud her mum would have been of her! I imagine many other adults who were brought up in harsh regimes and abused at a young age will relate to this book.
Considering Kathleen was constantly told she was a failure and suffered continual abuse it is truly inspirational that when she came out of the Catholic Home that she knew that it was important to find out why this experience has happened to her. Her courageous decision to research her background was the right one - I am glad she found the evidence to prove that her mother was not at all like the character she had been led to believe by the Sisters.
This is the BEST book I have read this year and would recommend it 100% to any Amazon reader.
