Previous edition: published as The lost child of Philomena Lee. London: Macmillan, 2009
'Philomena' is the tale of a mother and a son whose lives were scarred by the forces of hypocrisy on both sides of the Atlantic and of the secrets they were forced to keep. A compelling narrative of human love and loss, Martin Sixsmith's moving account is both heartbreaking yet ultimately redemptive.

I've always liked biographies and autobiographies, and since there is a fair choice of these available for download, I've tended to pick them for my e-audio listening. A lot of customers at the library, including book groups, have been asking for both the book and the dvd of Philomena, so I thought I'd check it out. It wasn't quite what I'd expected from the movie trailers, but it was still a gripping, moving and well told story. I'm glad I read it.
