  • Philomena

    An outstanding read made even better knowing it was a true account. Very sad to think that people can be so cruel, unchristian and self rightous to those who may be different.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Philomena

    Distressing to read of the journey of one man to find where his roots, and his mother's never ending journey to find him. Well written, and very moving. Enough to shame the Catholic church yet again.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Ms

    Very moving story. Highlights the bigotted Irish Catholic system of the 1950's in relation to unmarried mothers and also the power of the Church over the Irish government in allowing these children to be adopted (bought) by Americans. Also a very descriptive account of the difficulties of identifying as gay in the 80s & 90s. The main focus in the story is the life & struggles of the adopted child Michael Hess.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Lost Child Of Philomena

    This is a wonderful book until I was half way in the middle I find this to be a little boring when spoken too much about Politics in the USA.

    Thanks for your feedback!
