In the Family Way

Add to wishlistAdded to wishlistRemoved from wishlist 0


Only a generation or two ago, illegitimacy was one of the most shameful things that could happen in a family. In the Family Way tells secrets kept for entire lifetimes: long-silent voices from the workhouse, the Magdalene Laundry or the distant mother-and-baby home. Anonymous childhoods are recalled, spent in the care of Dr Barnardo or a Child Migration scheme halfway across the world. There are sorrowful stories in this book, but it is also about hope: about supportive families who welcomed ‘love-children’ home, or those who were parted and are now reconciled. Most of all, In the Family Way is about finally telling the truth.’Robinsons mix of official data and personal anecdote is powerful and persuasive, and uss the historical to bring us closer to the times’ – The Independent
