Raised by the Church:Growing up in New York City's Catholic orphanages,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Raised by the Church: Growing up in New York City's Catholic Orphanages (Hardcover)
I purchased this book from Amazon after seeing a review in a magazine This book was very educational for me. I become an adult in the fifty's and sixty's and did not realize we still had orphanages of this size. The Author gave a very vivid detail of his life as an orphan. It was interesting from the very beginning, I could not put the book down, I completed it in one sitting. The author did say that he thought foster homes were a better place to raise orphans
even if they were not perfect.That also surprised me. As a retired teacher I have recommended this book to many friends.I also recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the welfare of our young people.
