Summary

The shocking true story of a young boy hidden away from his family and the world in a Catholic home for unmarried mothers in 1950s Dublin.
Born an 'unfortunate' onto the rough streets of 1950s Dublin, this is the incredible true story of a young boy, a secret child born into a home for unmarried mothers in 1950s Dublin and a mother determined to keep her child, even if it meant hiding him from her own family and the rest of the world.
Despite the poverty, hardship, and isolation, the pride and hope of a community of women who banded together to raise their children would give this boy his chance to find his real family.
A wonderfully heartwarming and evocative tale of working class life in 1950s Dublin and 1960s London.
