I’m speechless ,this was a thought provoking this book. book which keeps you gripped and leaves you thinking about it even after you’ve finished it.
It’s not a subject I know a lot about, but I found it heart breaking that in the 50’s till the 70’s unmarried mothers were sent away to give birth & have their babies adopted, but what saddened me was that when these girls needed love and support,they were treated so coldly and expected to work hard. It seems crazy that they sent them away to avoid stigma when nowadays it is commonplace to see unmarried mothers, it’s as if back then it was a different world.
If you are after a story that is beautifully written, with strong characters this is the perfect book that long after reading will stay in you’re thoughts.
Thank you to netgalley for letting me review
