    Kathleen What a horrendous ordeal these children went through how can someone like a nun treat children like this as Kathleen says some didn t make it they killed themselves the Catholic church has a lot to answer for 5STARS.

    50 20185 5 Little drifters is about the childs that being taking care in Catholic homes The child was have been through the abuse but no one seem to know bout it except for a few people and the childs as well.I feel so mad reading this because of the poor and awful thing that nun and staff of the Catholic homes done to the kids They are so poor and a lot of children suffer because of it, not mention the mental breakdown and the death.I believe that the child abuse is still happen nowadays,, and it s happening all around of the world We should open our eyes ,, see our surroundings and you will notice that there is child abuse around us.I feel upset, mad and cry while reading this book People should read this.

    Fascinating but heatbreakingI ve been reading a lot about orphanages that existed many years ago that were run by nuns, mainly in Ireland First I want to say to all the reviewers of these biographies have their head in the sand when they make comments like, Oh, I can t believe that nuns would do such things Well, believe it There is story after story recounting the same abuses from the children that lived them Many children did not survive past young adulthood and the ones that did are emotionally disturbed beyond belief A whole generation of Irish children were made to suffer and were cruelly abused in every way possible The Catholic church is morally bankrupt and I wish they d just go fiscally bankrupt too No one was punished for these crimes and most of the orphans cannot identify their attackers due to confidentiality clauses so there is no justice The hush money given was just that and many of the abused don t want the money they were offered a mere pittance as they feel it s tainted This book started out so happy and carefree Yes, the O Shea children were living an imperfect life but at least they had love and each other What happened to them is inexcusable I m going to read some books about these institutions but I can tell you the stories these women have written line up perfectly No room for doubt or disbelief Like the most painful fairy tale you can imagine, there was rarely a Cinderella ending for these dear children.

    A powerful book Well written I couldn t put it down I felt enraged reading about Kathleen and her siblings neglect and abuse at the hands of their parents, the nuns and attached people who were supposedly helping vulnerable children Kathleen is such a strong person and has shown a courage and determination to overcome the past that I can only envy Her forgiveness and love towards her father, who did his best to change and to make amends, is the only truly Christian act she recounts, because it certainly didn t come from within the church I don t think it s fair to put all the blame on the Catholic church, because it is clear from Kathleen s words that the whole society was complicit On the other hand, the behaviour from so called Christians, especially those in positions of power, was utterly despicable And as for Kathleen s mother Words fail me Highly recommended read.

    Everyone has a story and this story had to be told, so this why I gave it 3 stars Otherwise the quality of the writing only deserves 2 stars.

    the story of 11 children in Ireland in the 1960s and 1970s who led a chaotic life with her parents her father being a heavy drinker sometimes violent then their mother left them eventually, the father has the children taken away from him where they are put in one of the convents which have now been proved to be sites of abuse and cruelty this is the heartbreaking story of one of the family and how she survived then her life now plus how her other family have coped or not a heartbreaking story with a real tear factor

  9. says:

    Writing is just fair but compelling nonetheless In reading others reviews, I couldn t figure how so few mentioned the awful treatment of the children by their own parents The religious orders who ran the orphanage need to be held accountable for the abuse they suffered, absolutely agree, but nearly half the book is about child abuse by their father and later, their mother Also, there was horrendous wife abuse by the father which is really another form of child abuse as it was witnessed by the children.

    Amazing readOnly rating I would give this story, it really touches tour heart, well written You can not put it down once you start Very sad and upsetting throughout I read books like this to remind me that there is always someone out there worse off than myself and this book is proof of that So sad to have lost so much and people you love Great read thank you for the story
