Rare book

I agree with the first reviewer, After reading the first book, I could not wait to start the second. Her journey continues where the last book leaves off. I thought it was great. The nun's were not easy to live with, but she does get back at them one way or another. It makes you laugh and then you feel so sad for her. She is still looking for love, for someone to tell her "she's worth something in life". The doors close, or should I say open, once again on her at the age of 16, where she is once again on her own, but she has a plan. I do hope there is another book to see where her life takes her. My hat is off to you Martha, Your children should be VERY proud of YOU.

A most profound and deeply disturbing account of a childhood no child should ever have. Yet through it all, Martha does not give in to despair but keeps plodding on doing what she's told to do and has to do, to survive.
Martha shares the trauma of her experiences very realistically and yet the book never wallows in self pity but rather she interlaces the tough times with a great deal of humour and her rising mischievous and lively personality begin to shine through.
She carries the reader with her emotionally and absorbed to the very last page where she leaves you waiting to see how she fares in her next ventures in life.
What an amazingly talented writer from one who, because of such a neglected childhood, had to teach herself to read and write.
Gavidor
Wow, what a stunningly written book. This makes for some very intense reading. How did this child not just sit in a corner and give up the will to live? This book will make you angry, sad and helpless but you won't be able to put it down.
Dianantrius
Amazing story, very depressing at times but has a fast pace with a lot of believable circumstances. It felt historically accurate and has very descriptive situations.
Damand
A moving and enchanting book. A tough little girls hard life in Ireland. Sad, funny and in a strange way uplifting. You'll love it.
Buge
LOVE the Irish dialect, but, not in text form. Requires too much concentration for bedtime reading.
An interesting look at another time. I found this entire series very interesting look at another culture and time. While it the first book is about abuse to some degree all of the series shows a look at the culture times and struggles of this girl through out her life.
