    Truth Emerges from Secrecy

    After reading the book twice, I think the Albert family is courageous in standing up for their sister and for themselves. This abuse occurred in the heartland of the U.S., but it undoubtedly has parallel situations in other parts of the country. Don Phillips has compiled information, records, and recollections to write a creditable true-life story. Reading of the family's struggles makes one understand better the reality of sexual abuse. This family deserves praise for their courage and honesty in sharing their life story.

    The Catholic Church better make changes

    This is a well-written true story about cruelty by priests and nuns to innocent children. In this book, New York Times bestselling author Donald T. Phillips details the true story of a family from Kansas whose children were put in an orphanage run by the Catholic church after falling on hard times. When one of the daughters dies years later, she leaves material that reveals the secret life she led at the home and later as a woman, having a sexual relationship with a priest, giving birth to his child, and being abandoned. As the brothers discussed this discovery, they also compared their experiences at the home only to find out all of them had been abused by priests and nuns. The Catholic Church should be ashamed of its behavior and make sure that this tale of horror never happens again.
