How It Was

by Michele M on Jan 2, 2014

One excellent aspect of all three memoirs is realism. Worth is honest and compassionate as she tells about the aftermath of the Workhouse horrors. This book is the grimmest of the three, and well worth reading. It shows that humans are resilient in the face of terrible suffering.
