Darling Baby Mine : A Son's Extraordinary Search for His Mother, Hardback Book

Darling Baby Mine : A Son's Extraordinary Search for His Mother Hardback

Description

A heartbreaking memoir tackling the mistreatment of women and the stigma of mental health in the 1940s.

DARLING BABY MINE is a compelling read recalling John's extraordinary search for his mother.

In a story that couldn't happen today, John eventually finds his mother interred in a mental asylum where she's been kept for thirty-five years diagnosed as a schizophrenic following a bout of post-natal depression.

It is in these circumstances that John attempts to form a relationship with a woman who's not only been a secret for most of his life but is also severely institutionalised.
