Clair Wills | Missing Persons, Or My Grandmother’s Secrets

How could a whole family and a whole country abandon unmarried mothers and their children, erasing them from history? Cultural historian Clair Wills delves into her compelling family history. A detective story, memoir, cultural history and devastating work of literary non-fiction, Wills’ book unearths the story of her unknown cousin and of Ireland’s missing children.
