Description

When Marie eventually left the convent and went home, aged ten, she remained silent on what had happened for the best part of 50 years. I have written to ask Help why but got a copy-and-pasted-not relevant reply (so I've written again). How a little girl had to take care of her younger siblings since her mother continued to have a new baby each year.

She hasn't been able to find Sister O'Brien's grave to lay those flowers but Marie says she has forgiven her alleged tormentor. Although there was no physical abuse in the Grammar School, the emotional abuse was dreadful and constant. A police investigation in December 2015 revealed Sister O'Brien as a suspect, but she died before the case could be heard in court. Their stories, told through the words of this book, showcase their courage and determination in the face of adversity. One day, Marie caught a glimpse of Freddie in another room with the boys – he dashed over and gave her a little kiss on the nose.Marie, six, and her seven-year-old brother, Fred, were placed in Greenfield House temporarily when their parents, who had eight other children, were unable to look after them. I would like to thank Mirror Books, Netgalley and the author Marie Hargreaves, the bravest woman I've ever read for allowing me to read it early. I do understand that back then it was almost impossible to breach such horrible experiences, somewhat taboo and also it was felt a lot like shame.

She isn't even allowed to keep her own name and the Convent is overseen by an utterly vicious and sadistic nun. Things went from bad to worse as Marie was taken to a dormitory, and saw her horrible living conditions.

Things may have changed in recent years/decades but, I think it's important to help those children that need it and that if there are parents struggling and also with mental issues they should try and get the necessary help so they eventully could cope with difficult situations where small children are involved. Marie, six, and her seven-year-old brother, Fred, were placed in Greenfield House when their parents, who had eight other children, were unable to look after them due to crippling poverty and her mum's undiagnosed but severe mental illness.Although it gave Marie great comfort, Sister Isobel grabbed her and marched her out of the room – panic rose in her chest as she realised she was in for the worst beating yet.
