Product Details
ISBN: 9781739570583
Author: Phyl Herbert
Format: Paperback

It was the ‘Swinging Sixties’ and the first time Phyl Herbert had made love. When she
became pregnant, she told no one except her married lover, who asked, ‘Are your sure I’m the father?’

She hid her pregnancy in London before returning to St. Patrick’s Mother and Baby Home in Dublin to give birth to a baby girl. Six weeks later, she watched as a car drove her daughter away to an unknown destination. Despite the heartbreak, in her innocence she thought she was free to start her life all over again. She did not bargain, however, for the toll that keeping a secret would exact throughout her adulthood.

After twenty-six years her daughter made contact with her. The Price of Silence explores how their reunion progressed.
