Description

"For those who we lost along the way, I tell this story. For all the children who suffered in this terrible place. For all those I consider my brothers and sisters; the ones who died, the ones who lost their minds, the ones who drown their memories every day in a bottle of whisky, I tell this for you. Because in the end we are all brothers and sisters - and if we don't feel that bond of love between each other, just as human beings, then we are nothing. We are no better than the monsters that ran the convents."

Based in Ireland in the 1960s and 70s, Kathleen's story is a story of extreme hardship, suffering and abuse. It is the story of 11 siblings, abandoned by their mother and torn from their father, incarcerated in convents and then driven apart in the cruelest ways imaginable; it is the story of their ruined childhoods and their fight for recompense. But more than that, it is a story of courage, survival and the incredible strength of sibling bonds against overwhelming adversities.

Out of terrible darkness comes a remarkable story. In the tradition of Irish storytelling, Kathleen offers a mesmerizing account of her family's experience.
