What should have been a gripping and emotional journey was difficult to get involved. I wanted to root for the characters and the horrible situation they were in (not being able to get their own child out of an orphanage in Ireland), but I couldn't find myself caring. I didn't like any of the characters, including the children which is odd. I have a ten-year-old daughter and the ten-year-old character seemed five in some situations and 16 in others. While I believe that the happenings in this novel probably were true and the injustice in this is staggering, I needed it to feel real.
