'I don't feel sorry for myself. Today everything is all right. I look at it is this way, it can't ever be as bad as it was then...'. Sean Hogan was just eight years old when he was confined in the notorious Artane Industrial School under the brutal regime of the Christian Brothers. In and out of care throughout his childhood, Sean was so badly neglected by his alcoholic parents that he never even knew what day his birthday fell on, or how old he was - things he only learned as an adult. But when he arrived at Artane, instead of receiving the care he so desperately needed, he entered into months of horrific sexual abuse at the hands of some of the brothers. Now, for the first time, he feels able to tell his story - and reveal the devastating truth of what really happened in Ireland's industrial schools. "In Harm's Way" is a powerful and moving story of astonishing hardship and near despair, but also of triumph over terrible adversity.

But it is also a fine portrait of Irish life in the 'sixties and 'seventies, with sharp insights into family and social life, all with a lightness of touch which makes for an easy read. The books sets a whole new standard in this genre, and well worth the read.
I commend Sean or writing this book and on sharing with the world how horrific was his life. There were times when I was going to stop reading because it was so upsetting to read. How could any human being do what was done to Sean ?
Read this book, it comes highly recommended but be prepared for your peace of mind to vanish.
