Summary

The Unbreakable Child, a story about forgiving the unforgivable, is a riveting journey inside the secretive underbelly of the St. Thomas / St. Vincent Orphan Asylum in rural Kentucky. It is the first book in the United States to confront the institutionalized physical and emotional abuse suffered by countless orphans at the hands of Catholic clergy over these last decades. It also documents the historic United States lawsuit and first-ever settlement paid by Roman Catholic nuns in the United States as recompense for decades of brutal institutional abuse of the author, her sisters and 42 other children.

Hard to Imagine

Any additional comments?

Kim Richardson went through some horrible things at the hands of the Catholic church. I find it so horrific when a religion uses its power in the name of God to cause such harm. I believe this woman did a service to all to share this story. The reason I gave it a lower rating is the over acting by the narrator. She is over the top on some of the vicious abuse scenes, and makes this story unbelievable. I would still recomend the story, it just could have been so much better.
