In the 1950s shortly after her father's death Judith Kelly was left in the care of nuns at a Catholic orphanage while her mother searched for a place for them to live She was eight years old Far from being cared for Judith found herself in a savage and terrifying institution where physical emotional and sexual abuse was the daily norm and the children's lives were reduced to stark survival As the months became years and no word came from I ve often read the controversies surrounding memoir but regardless of whether it is completely truthful or come with a slight exaggeration I believe the gist always remains the same The author tries to portray the horrifying experience and as common as it is usually alteration takes place noIMO as long as you don t change every single event or claim that they happened when they don t I m fineAs for this particular book it does bother me to know that the author unintentionally her claim plagiarise other works while researching on styles to better help in expressing her feelings We would never know the truth about what really happened but maybe the content should matter Overall it has been uite hard to read at first but as it progresses things started to fall into place and everything makes sense There are many uestions about countless events that I REALLY WANTED TO KNOW MORE but she didn t provide further explanationsinfo
