'I promised that I would one day write a book and tell the world about the home for unmarried mothers. I have at last kept my promise.' In Ireland, 1951, the young June Goulding took up a position as midwife in a home for unmarried mothers run by the Sacred Heart nuns. What she witnessed there was to haunt her for the next fifty years. It was a place of secrets, lies and cruelty. A place where women picked grass by hand and tarred roads whilst heavily pregnant. Where they were denied any contact with the outside world; denied basic medical treatment and abused for their 'sins'; where, after the birth, they were forced into hard labour in the convent for three years. But worst of all was that the young women were expected to raise their babies during these three years so that they could then be sold - given up for adoption in exchange for a donation to the nuns. Shocked by the nuns' inhumane treatment of the frightened young women, June risked her job to bring some light into their dark lives. June's memoir tells the story of twelve women's experiences in this home and of the hardships they endured, but also the kindness she offered them, and the hope she was able to bring.

As you experience this journey with Bill, you will feel his connection to the collective Universal Energies, the Soul of the very Earth, all of Nature and all People. His voice of Love, Understanding and Deep Passion for Life and Love are, indeed, the whisperings of his soul. Bill's gift of expression sheds an extraordinary light on those moments in life we so often allow to slip through our fingers, let go unnoticed or deem ordinary every day occurrences. For Bill, there-in lie the Treasures. If you asked him about his writing, he would simply say, "It's Not Me.", then he may tell you about a walk in nature, a ride on a bus or a moment stuck in rush hour traffic. His inspiration seemingly flows from a 4th person or on-looker's standpoint. He holds on to it only long enough to grab a pen and notebook where another voice takes over, and he acts as merely the scribe. Thoughtfully and lovingly included in this work are a few selected poems and writings by his children. Their hearts are right there, on the pages, their souls speaking in the clear and concise voice of living and feeling. How fortunate we are to hear them.Juliette ProbstLiterary ConsultantArtistMidway, Utah
