About the Author

Bette Browne has worked as a journalist with Reuters in Europe, the United States and Asia. She now lives and works in Dublin. Her official website can be found at www.BetteBrowne.com

Stolen Lives brings us the voices of abuse survivors, from Baltimore in Cork, to Tralee in Kerry, to Artane in Dublin, and in London and Liverpool, who suffered within Ireland’s religious-run industrial institutions, abandoned by courts of the State and in many cases by their families, in one of the darkest chapters in Irish history.

"We cannot re-write those stories, nor can we write a happy ending to them. But it is our clear and inescapable duty to reach out and rescue, to listen and to learn and to create something out of this catalogue of cruelty in which, as a nation, we can take some pride." - Enda Kenny (now An Taoiseach) speaking during the Dáil Éireann debate on Ryan Commission report, June 11, 2009.
