review Home for Erring and Outcast Girls

Th's red light districts the progressive home bucks public opinion by offering faith training and rehabilitation to prostitutes addicts unwed mothers and ruined girls without forcibly separating mothers from children When Lizzie Bates and Mattie McBride meet there one sick and abused but desperately clinging to her young daughter the other jilted by the beau who fathered her ailing son they form a friendship that will see them through unbearable loss heartbreak difficult choices and ultimately diverging pathsA century later Cate Sutton a reclusive 45 stars Emotional Informative Powerful UnforgettableEstablished in 1903 in Texas the Berachah Industrial Home for the Redemption of Erring Girls was an unprecedented institution that offered a chance of hope for girls who had little to no options left in life Prostitutes poor homeless abused the Home offered a refuge for women fleeing their terrible situations Differing from other organizations this home offered rehabilitation training spiritual counsel and support for unwed mothers without separating mother from child The goal was to provide a safe haven for young women while training them to become productive members of society Lizzie and Mattie are two of the young women who reside at the Home in 1905 finding true friendship together Lizzie s daughter Docia was only a toddler when she arrived and grows up feeling the love and support of all who reside and work within the HomeIn 2018 Cate is a librarian and is working in the university library Archives She becomes fascinated in piecing together the journals and articles about the Berachah Home She feels personally connected to the girls who once resided at this unparalleled nurturing shelter of its timeThis novel unfolds through three perspectives Lizzie Mattie and Cate and two timelines I was completely captivated by both timelines and I loved all the characters eually yet uniuely They each had their own intriguing and engrossing back story that slowly unfolded as the novel progressed I have not had a reading experience like this before The novel started off strong I felt an immediate connection to the storyline and characters However I started to struggle with some sentence structure I m not sure if I wasn t focusing properly but I found I had to reread sentences several times The words weren t flowing smoothly but I remained fascinated with the storyline and characters It is not a book to be rushed it needs to be slowly savoured to get the true feel of the writing and the times Once I slowed down a little I was able to absorb the words smoothly and enjoyably Around the 23 point the pace picked up immensely and I hungrily devoured the rest of the book That last section of the book really kicked it up a few notches for meThere is one major twist that completely blind sided me in the latter half of the novel It was unexpected cleverly plotted and such a brilliant addition to the storyFinishing this novel I felt sad to leave these characters I truly enjoyed spending hours with them Reading the Author s Note at the end made me love this book even Knowing these characters and this Home are based on real people and events makes it even impactful I am in awe of the founders of this Home in a time when it would have been difficult to show these ruined women respect I thank Julie Kibler for writing this novel and opening our eyes to these unsung heroes of their time Side note it was eerie to read the parts of this novel referring to living in uarantine during the Spanish flu all while we are in uarantine for COVID 19Thank you to NetGalley for my review copy and my lovely local library for the loan of the physical copy
