This is the second book I've read by Marita Conlon-McKenna. Another take on the infamous laundries run by Catholic Sisters in Ireland; the first I experienced was the documentary and the film, The Magdalene Sisters. This novel by Marita Conlon-McKenna is told beautifully. Her story here is a hard one, of an unwed pregnant young woman in 1950's Ireland who has few options but to enter a home for unwed mothers. The Magdalen(e) homes are run by nuns who are often harsh and punitive. The reader fully experiences this unfair and nightmarish chapter of young Esther’s life. She looked skinnier than ever, her hair caught up in short bunches on the side of her head.

It is little wonder that this book was a number one bestseller in Ireland, as it deals with a shameful episode in its history, that of the Magdalen Laundries. Run by the Catholic Church, these were homes that were set up for "fallen" women. Originally set up for prostitutes, they devolved more into homes for unwed mothers.
