Title: Moving, factually correct and highly informative
Content: Absolutely brilliant book! Highly recommend it. One of the reviewers here states the author has her facts wrong with Kirwan house. It's the reviewer who is factually wrong. Eileen Martin's mother was in Kirwan house on SCR in Dublin and Eileen was put in the Bethany home. I am one of the Bethany babies and I know this is correct. If you read the story correctly, you'd have seen that. This book was written by the reporter who broke the story of the Tuam Babies and documents her hard work throughout this scandal. This book is a deeply moving account of Bridget Dolan who lost her two babies in the Tuam home. Bridget was at the heart of the expose of the Tuam babies in 2014. John Desmond Dolan is believed to be dead and William Desmond his brother is missing. This book documents the unbelievable scandals that went on in this country, from the homes to the high and mighty such as DeValeras son who was caught up in illegal adoptions, Dr. Irene Creedon - it wasn't just the nuns. This book will anger you, rage you, make you cry, make you feel despair and passion to keep the fight going until the babies are all found. Can't believe in 2022 all those years after this author exposed this scandal, that those babies are still in a septic tank. This is one of the best books I've read in years. So so emotional, full of highs and lows and highs. It is so informative. I highly recommend this book which is now out on audio cassette which is hugely helpful as many of the survivors prefer listening.

Title: Answers all the questions
Content: After wondering why a story which made worldwide headlines could disappear off the radar, I am relieved to hear that the work of Catherine Corless, the historian who broke the story, has finally been vindicated. This excellent book, as well as bringing to life Bridget's story and the attempts by her daughter to trace two lost little boys, shows the power of the media and vested interests, in the USA particularly, in suppressing what I consider to be a crime against humanity. It is hair raising to think that documentary crews who were set to investigate the story turned back because of the powerful forces selling the story short and insisting that it was nothing more than sensationalism. But it wasn't. The State Pathologist for Ireland confirms everything. The book was clearly written in a hurry and could do with some editing, which is why I only gave it four stars. But later editions should sort that out. This book heralds a major breakthrough in this sad and disgusting story. If you have any interest in what went on at Tuam I urge you to buy this book

Title: The sad truth behind Catholic Ireland's murky past
Content: Out of all the scandals revealed about the Catholic church in Ireland in recent times, for some reason, I have been deeply affected by the Tuam Babies case. The possiblility of hundreds of innocent babies being "dumped" unceremoniously in a septic tank by a "religious" order defies belief. This book gives us the facts of the case and also gets behind the facts to give us the very personal and moving stories of the people involved. Bridget's story is told movingly by her daughter Anna. Anna's sense of loss and grief about her two lost brothers is palplable. She is a very determined lady and will keep going in her quest for the truth about her brothers stories. The journalist Alison O'Reilly has done a fantastic job in putting the story together. She gives the facts and manages to blend the real human stories in so that the reader is completely brought along. Although this is a heart breaking read, there is a hope that some day, the families can find closure and bring their relatives home for buriel where they belong. A well deserved 5 stars. Susan

Title: A poignant story
Content: I bought this book for some enlightenment into the Tuam story, which I had read about in the newspapers. I found the tale of Anna Corrigan's mother sad and typical of the Catholic system, so not really surprised by the outcome. I was however, surprised though that this story was not believed and even undermined by the press of all people, until forensics stepped in. But I guess there are people in high places including the media who still would like to suppress the truth in favour of the Catholic Church. What I would have liked to have seen is , like another reader has already said, is delving into why these Nuns did what they did. Why have there been no prosecutions? The dumping of corpses in a sewage pipe, one on top of the other, is nothing short of what went on in the former Yugoslavia some 20 odd years ago. As for the appeal of the book, it is written very much with the sort of emotional edge you would find in a tabloid, with sentences, words and passages repeated. I wonder did the author edit the book herself? It could have done with a thorough substantial edit if you ask me, as it seems a bit rushed. I also noticed that one of the case studies she talks about later on, says that she the mother and baby home was Kirwan House. It was not, it was The Bethany Home, so she has not got her facts straight. I know this because I know the person who she wrote about. Still, overall I enjoyed reading this book.
