Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Thursday, June 06, 2019
I got this book at a local Goodwill thrift shop. It's a look at the 1950s practice of taking the babies of unwed Irish mothers and sending them to America for adoption, with a look at one mother, Philomena, and the son she began to search for fifty years after losing him. The book inspired a 2013 film.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the film, with references to the book.]
