when she is betrayed by her lover Conor Rejected by her family she is sent to join the 'fallen women' of the Holy Saints Convent in Dublin where behind high granite walls she works in the infamous Magdalen laundry while she awaits the birth of her babyAt Well done to this Irish author for her bravery and support of women This account of a fictional young woman s time in the Magdalene Laundries in the 1950s was written in 1999 before the Irish State had been forced to issue a fulsome apology to all the women so wronged Esther lives in a rural community in Connemara and with little excitement or world experience her head is easily turned by a handsome lad who arrives to work a nearby spinster s farm This portion of the book actually rings very true with another book I read recently Would You Marry A Farmer by Lorna Sixsmith who examines the history of Irish farm domestic life The grown farmers looking for wives had to wait until their parents had died or retired the younger sons had to find other work as the farm would only support one family while the women had to get work elsewhere or if they inherited a farm find a man willing to work it who might be all too keen to marry into the farm At the same time in The Magdalen we see that children were generally cherished even if the family had little moneyHalfway the story changes as Esther s religion obsessed mother orders her pregnant daughter out of the house and the narrow minded community would not accept a single mother or her child The only recourse is a home for fallen women run by the nuns and Esther chooses to go to Dublin where nobody knows her In fact she might as easily have gone to a nearby home for high walls surround the place the gates are locked and nobody ever leaves The women have to work right through their pregnancies laundering clothes and linen much of which is sent by hotels and as a report showed in 2013 by the State Food is bad beds cold punishment and verbal abuse are freuent prayers obligatory for their penance Then the babies are taken away the book doesn t say but the report showed that they were sold Some women come in to the laundry as transfers from the orphanage next door while others never leave and are worked to death in their middle age Esther gets to know these girls and women each with a different tale to tell and has to face the fact that she might never be allowed to leave and if she does she has no home to return to and nothing but her determination to survive To those who wonder if the account is exaggerated the thousands of women so treated were put to work without pay without social insurance or pension contributions they were totally dependent on the nuns for everything they were not allowed to leave if they did escape the Garda were called and
