this is one of the best books I have read all year . I loved everything about it including the sad because the sad made you root for the good to happen . I find it astounding that these places did not fully close until 1996 . And in 1993 they found several bodies of children buried on the grounds of one of these laundries . I find it so sad that all the government could do is apologize to these victims of these laundries . All in all it was a great book and I thoroughly enjoyed it .
