"Books and Coffee it doesn't get any better than this..."

The Whipping Club - Deborah Henry I won this on Goodreads giveaways.

A rather dark and disturbing tale about "Adrian" a boy born in Ireland in the 1950's to an unmarried interfaith couple. The mother decides to put her son up for adoption believing he is living in America with his adoptive parents finds out years later that he was put into an orphanage not far from where she now lives. The story goes on to tell what happens inside the Irish Industrial School system and the struggle Adrian's parents have in trying to get their son returned to them.

I found the story to be a bit rough to read because the flash backs from the present to the past were a little odd and I didn't particularly care for the characters. The ending was harsh but acceptable.
