really liked it

This was a powerful book - page turning, gripping and enlightening. Read it! What was hidden in the 1950s about unmarried pregnant young girls is appalling and this is a topic which must be brought out in to the open now. Nuns, as we have been taught, are usually kind and compassionate, this story is the exact opposite and heart wrenching as to what these terrible women did to these poor young girls before, during and after childbirth and put these babies up for immediate adoption or worse, if they were disabled, dispose of them in an utterly cruel way. I won't say more, but just read the book, talk about it and spread the word.
