Ever seen the film 'The Magdalene Sisters' ? a very dark side right there...
Looks like an excellent book. I wonder how 3 to be 4 would handle what it has to say.
hey, everybody has a right to write a book about their personal experiences. It doesnt rock my world. Lee Stroebel and Josh McDowell were two non-believing journalists who set out to show why Jesus wasnt the Son of God and in the process found that through their research they could not and thus became believers.
Everybody has a book to write.
Unfortunately, although fictionalized, this was very close to what happened in some of the closed religious orders in Nova Scotia, Quebec and many religious communities in the US. The Catholic Church looses its way and mission, needs to be put back on track.. sometimes it happens after a lot of physical and emotional damage.
I know they probably took license, but 'Magdalene' was based on a true story and the laundries operated in Ireland into the 1990s
Hard to believe it happened in Quebec also!
