Stolen from Her Mother (by Rachel Wesson) … emotional read

I enjoy reading historical fiction books. This one had a different focus which involved the Magdalen Laundries. I was familiar with them because of a previous book I read and it is atrocious what these unwed mothers endured from the Catholic Church. It is literally heartbreaking. I think one thing that kept me from enjoying the book as much was the narrator. I love audiobooks but have discovered how much the narrator affects my enjoyment of a book. It is obvious the author did a great deal of research. This is an emotional read that will have you invested in the lives of the characters. You need to discover on your own whether Kate finally has a happy ending. You need to buy this book!

Thank you to NetGalley and Hatchette UK-Bookoutre for my advanced review copy. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
