This book is fiction, based on a true story. The story will touch on all your emotions, but overall it is a sad story. A young woman with a bright future stopped in her tracks. An unplanned pregancy in the late 1920's was a very difficult thing to deal with, but even more so if you came from a strict Irish Catholic background. Love within her family certainly helps,but dealing with the stigma of an unwed mother and her baby was an incredible problem. Rose and her parents struggled to find an answer. The answer did come, but from a totally unexpected source-the Catholic Church. It was a radical plan meant to protect the reptutation of a young girl and her infant. Family secrets would need to be kept. Incredible sacrafices would be called for.

About the Author

Tom Kelly is a recently retired CRNA who lives with his wife and three pets in western Illinois. The desire to write the book started in 1993, when he first learned the story of Rose. Serious writing did not happen until he officially retired in 2015. The book started slow, mostly because he is not a proffesional writer and as his wife would say, didn't know how to use a comma or semi-colon. Slowly the book started to take shape and with the editing help of his wife and a professional editor, the book was finished.
