Suffer The Little Children: The True Story Of An Abused Convent Upbringing

Frances Reilly

1 Reviews

Rated 0

Biography: general, Memoirs, Prose: non-fiction

The heartbreaking yet inspiring account of an abused childhood, a stolen future and the strength of the human spirit.

Frances Reilly and her sisters were abandoned by their mother outside Nazareth House Convent - a Belfast orphanage run by nuns. Little did they know the unimaginable cruelty they'd endure within its walls.

Frances suffered horrifically at the hands of the Sisters: brutally beaten, worked like a slave, abused and molested, the convent regime stripped her of everything - education, innocence and childhood. But the hope of rescue or escape never left her.

Years later, Frances would face her demons in court, bringing to account those who so viciously stole her youth. SUFFER THE LITTLE CHILDREN is a gripping and moving story of one child's spirit of survival.
