I found this book interesting, though occasionally hard to follow as it jumps back and forth between the present and the past. I had read non-fiction books about the Magdalene Laundries in Ireland, which is what led me to read this book. It is definitely geared toward people who have an interest in the Laundries. The Laundries, in general, were brutal places. I think that is downplayed a bit in this book, but it does give an idea of what the people who lived through it may have been feeling.
