Description of The Lost Child of Philomena Lee by Martin Sixsmith PDF

“The Lost Child of Philomena Lee: A Mother, Her Son, and a Fifty-Year Search” is such an interesting inside to what happened in Ireland in regards to the orphanages. Martin Sixsmith is the author of this book. It is a heart-touching story that highlights the injustice in the world during the fifties. Ireland has such a tragic history of oppression and abuse by the Catholic Church. This book contains a very sad story of how the Catholic Church in Ireland sold Irish babies of unwed mothers without the mothers’ consent. When she became pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to a convent to be looked after as a “fallen woman.” Then the nuns took her baby from her and sold him, like thousands of others, to America for adoption. Fifty years later, Philomena decided to find him. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Philomena’s son was trying to find her.

The Lost Child of Philomena Lee by Martin Sixsmith

Renamed Michael Hess, he had become a leading lawyer in the first Bush administration, and he struggled to hide secrets that would jeopardize his career in the Republican Party and endanger his quest to find his mother. A gripping expose told with novelist intrigue, Philomena pulls back the curtain on the role of the Catholic Church in forced adoptions and on the love between a mother and son who endured a lifelong separation. The book speaks to your heart of the injustice suffered at the hands of supposed icons of compassion the nuns, family, leaders of government. In the end, there is a celebration of the unbreakable bonds of a mother to her child, of humanity and compassion over ignorance and crass self-preservation. In short, a very special book with a surprising content not just about the appalling situation for unmarried mothers and their babies in the Catholic Irish republic but about the USA involvement in buying children.
