Can’t-Wait Wednesday: “All the Bad Apples” by Moïra Fowley-Doyle

Can't Wait Wednesday

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted Tressa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Happy Wednesday!

Today I’m going to be featuring a book about daughters, mothers, and sisters; a story about religion and secrets and a country’s history.

When Deena’s wild and mysterious sister Mandy disappears – presumed dead – her family are heartbroken. But Mandy has always been troubled. It’s just another bad thing to happen to Deena’s family. Only Deena refuses to believe it’s true.
And then the letters start arriving. Letters from Mandy, claiming that their family’s blighted history is not just bad luck or bad decisions – but a curse, handed down through the generations. Mandy has gone in search of the curse’s roots, and now Deena must find her. What they find will heal their family’s rotten past – or rip it apart forever.

I just finished reading this book a couple of hours ago, and I’m telling you this one is a must-read. Written around the Magdalene Laundries and start of initiatives to repeal the 8th amendment in Ireland, and woven into the story of a teen-aged girl’s quest to discover her familial roots, All the Bad Apples is a tough book to read. It made me mad and disgusted – made me hurt – all in equal measures, but it made me hope, too.

All the Bad Apples is now out from Penguin Random House.

    I’ve been really interested in this book, especially with that beautiful cover! I have another of this authors books that I want to read before I pick this one up though to see if her writing style is for me.
