5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Eye Opener, 20 April 2005
This review is from: The Light In The Window (Paperback)
I couldn't put this book down and recomend it to everyone to read. The tale of June Goulding and the horrors that she saw at Bessboro Unmarried mothers home is one that is unbelievable. What a cruel world we lived in when unmarried mothers were denied even basic medical care when they were pregnant. Not allowed to speak and with all of their possessions and clothes removed from them they faced a horrible ordeal as they give birth. They are then made to stay at the home to work for 3 years and then have the heartbreak of their children being taken from them.
Every woman should read this book and thank her lucky stars that she was not treated in this way.

i read this book due to the circumstances of birth,i was born either in there or at the nearest hospital st finbarrs i am a sixties baby.not to sure it may have been as bad after the change in august 1952 but i can imagine it still being the crossed fingers at girls in the 60's in the church driven state it was! thank somebody for my generation as it seems the church-priest-christian brothers are seen for what they were-are but hidden thru the stature they had at the time,religion maybe a point still in ireland but the be all and end all of life!
