Editorial Reviews

Review

"Unraveled family secrets are rewoven into bittersweet truth in this poignant debut. . . . Making use of her experience reporting the actual adoption scandal—in which tens of thousands of babies were sold off by nuns—O’Loughlin metes out revelations, both painful and redeeming." —Publishers Weekly

"Ann O’Loughlin has spun a masterful tale with The Secrets of Roscarbury Hall, a story full of secrets and dark memories . . . Beautiful story.”―Manhattan Book Review (5 stars)

"A delicious novel, filled with the joys and sorrows only humans can cook up. O'Loughlin has written a tale of sisterhood in all its forms—siblings, nuns, and strangers who appear out of the blue to become your family when you need one the most. Best read with a cuppa tea and warm scone, drizzled with sugar icing, sprinkled with lemon zest. Sweet and sour. Just like the women in Roscarbury Hall." —Mary Hogan, bestselling author of Two Sisters and The Woman in the Photo

“A lovely story of two women with the courage to confront the injustices of the past, bringing light to a dark corner of Ireland’s recent history.” —Kathleen MacMahon, bestselling author of This Is How It Ends

“Warm and engaging . . . I loved journeying through the lives of these fascinating characters. A beautifully drawn, skillfully written, well-researched novel.” —Kate Kerrigan, New York Times bestselling author of the Ellis Island Trilogy

“Secrets emerge, there’s a whopper of a twist, and this unabashed tear-jerker ends with a well-earthed, well-calculated emotional finale.” —Irish Times

“Highly engaging.” —Irish Independent

“Deftly written, moving, and courageous.” —Sunday Times

“A moving tale of loss, love, and redemption.” —Bella Books

“A superb read.” —Kim the Bookworm

“Powerfull and poignant . . . a moving story of love lost and found. . . . Will enthrall and delight its readers.” —Tracy Shepard

“A touching story and will no doubt touch the heart of many people across the world.” —Book Love Bug

“A poignant tale of secrets which damage the bond between families—told with an unpredictability that made this book impossible to put down.” —Reviewed by the Book

“A thought-provoking and poignant read.” —Jera’s Jamboree

“A truly heartfelt tale . . . a wonderfully written book that I cannot praise highly enough!” —Cosmochicklitan
