The recollections of Bridget Knight's upbringing in a poverty stricken family in a claustrophobic small southern Irish town, with her eventual escape to prosperous England. Looking back I do not think that childhood should be that traumatic and painful with so many miserable observations. The first few years of Bridget's life in an uncompassionate town now seemed to belong to the lost child.
What made the experience of listening to The Long Lane-Lost Child the most enjoyable?
A very sweet story of a girl growing up in abject poverty in 1940s Ireland. Loved the strong bonds she had with her mother and her best friend. Some truly heartbreaking moments. Wonderful narration.
