In 1959 my mother became ill from TB and we were left in the care of my father and grandmother. The ISPCC deemed my father an unfit parent to look after us and as a result, my sisters and I were sentenced to 14 years in Pembroke Alms Industrial School where we were placed in the care of the Sisters of Mercy. While there, my sisters and I were subjected to horrendous, almost unimaginable cruelty and abuse, both physically and mentally, the scars of which I still feel today

    the most hoffifying book I have ever read, in parts I could feel my blood run cold and had to put it down. How anyone can remain sane after an ordeal such as miriam has been through is beyond me. an amazing story of what our clergy is capable of and the terror the inflicted on innocent children. well done miriam, you are an angel on earth.
