Para pelacur, korban inses dan perkosaan, serta wanita yang hamil di luar nikah, semua dikumpulkan di Magdalen Laundry. Terbuang, terpenjara, tersiksa... semua demi penebusan dosa dan ampunan Tuhan.

How women were oppressed back on the old days, have no right to choose, no right to decide what to do with their life, they even forced to give up their child as a sign of their repentance.
Sinners was how they called, the society think the women are the ones to blame on the "adultery", while the men can live free without even bear any consequences.
Well, at least this book to remind you - specially those women - to be carefull on your act when it come to sexual relationship since in the end women

hmm...cerita di novel ini menarik...bahkan kisah di novel ini adalah Diangkat dari kisah nyata kehidupan Ester Doyle, gadis asal Irlandia, yang menjalani hukuman tragis karena dikucilkan keluarga ke Magdalen Laundry dan diperlakukan seperti budak, tentu cerita novel ini memilukan, mengandung pesan moral serta pelajaran berharga bagi pembacanya...

Lumayan lah....

ceritanya mayan ok, gak berbelit-belit, straight to the point,..walo mungkin "penderitaan" para perempuan yang digambarkan (terutama di sinopsis buku) kurang "menggigit" menurut saya...tp untuk keseluruhan, cukup menarik untuk dibaca..mengingat betapa menderitanya perempuan jaman dulu..(sepertinya jaman sekarang juga masih??)

Sederhana, memang mungkin bahwa ini diambil dari kisah nyata. Serasa melihat kenyataan dalam kehidupan sehari-hari yang ditampilkan lewat kata-kata.
Hanya saja terlalu sedih, terlalu banyak kehilangan, ayah adik dan anak.

the ending is not really good. overall, the book is impresive
