Ce livre relate la vie d'une mère et d'un fils séparés depuis 50 ans, sur 2 continents, à travers des faits historiques (l'Irlande catholique des années 50, le partie républicain sous Reagan, la découverte du HIV dans les années 80). Poignant !

A really good read, which gives you lots of food for thought. It's sad to think that this really did happen and affected lots more Mums and Babies.

Very good book but a bit too centered on the son's life! Almost nothing on the mother from their separation to the end...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Little to do with the film, Philomena 17 février 2016
Par S. S. Laufer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If you are looking for a book that mirrors the film, this is not it. If you are looking for the real story of a man torn because a nunnery in Ireland forced unwed girls to give up their babies, this is it. It is really about him and his feeling he must have a fundamental "badness" or else why would his birth mother have given him away? This feeling kept him from being truly happy for much of his life. Besides being in a business and culture that more than scorned gays. This is the true story of a gay man who ended up working for the Reagan administration and changed the U.S. to this day defending a gerrymandering suit. All the while his heart was longing to find his birth mother as was hers to find him. This book has deep details about one mans gay life that also reflects the nature of others. Hard to put down and hard to read because the truth of the situation is a tragedy.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Different book? 27 novembre 2013
Par Jill Meyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I just finished reading the 18 reader reviews of "The Lost Child of Philomena", before writing my own review of the book. And I can't figure out if everybody reviewing this book read the same book. About half of the reviewers referred to the book as mostly about Philomena, an Irish "Magdalene", torn apart from her child after raising him for three years in a home for unwed mothers in Ireland. The others appeared to have read a different book -and the same one I read - which is mostly about the child, Michael Hess, who was adopted by an American couple in the mid-1950's. The story is mostly about HIS life in the US and his growing up with the angst that adopted children sometimes have about their origins, as well as his coming to terms about his sexuality and life in college and law school and life in Washington DC as an official at the Reagen and HW Bush administrations and then at the Republican National Committee. Only at the end were Martin Sixsmith and Philomena brought back into the story.

Okay, that's not a problem for the purchaser and reader of the book, now retitled "Philomena: A Mother, A Son, and A 50 Year Search", as long as s/he knows in advance that's NOT what the book is about. This book is about 75% about Michael, his life, and his family - which IS very interesting - and about 25% about Irish shaming of young pregnant women, the eventual "selling" of their babies, and Philomena's search for her given-up child. I am going to see the movie, starring Dame Judi Dench this weekend, and I'll bet that the movie is more about Philomena than her child.

I point this out because the movie marketers seem to have taken a book - more about the son - and turned it around and made the movie more about the mother, and then tried to rebrand the book to align with the movie. Either that, or the early reviewers were reading an entirely different book than the rest of us, a book that WAS mostly about the mother and her search.

I also couldn't quite tell if the book was fiction or non-fiction. If it was non-fiction, then a whole lot of people know what they were saying 50 years ago. Sixsmith writes in the afterward that he interviewed a lot of the characters alive at that point, but then he also put characters together and changed some names. All in all, I didn't think the book was particularly well-written. I'm hoping the movie is better.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If you saw the movie Philomena, reading this book you'll discover "the rest of the story"! 24 avril 2014
Par Kathleen Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was deeply moved by the movie Philomena, and I was curious to see what Martin Sixsmith actually wrote after his research. I didn't anticipate the book would deal mostly with the life of Philomena's son, Anthony Lee, who became Michael Hess once he was adopted, but I am glad it did. I feel I now know "the rest of the story". He was indeed a "lost child" in more ways than one. In this book Martin Sixsmith reveals details that had been eluded to in the film. Sadly Michael had a difficult life, full of conflicts despite what he made of himself in order to establish a successful career in government and politics. I am not sure he was ever truly as happy as he was those first few years with Philomena at the convent in Ireland. Though forgotten, that time and his biological mother stayed embedded in his subconscious with bits and pieces surfacing from time to time. I was touched by his inner struggles with family, his never- ending search for a sense of belonging, and the challenges of his homosexuality. I didn't enjoy reading details of the practices among some gay men, but I suppose the telling was necessary to reveal how bizarre and conflicted Michael's life actually became. His few true friends, those who deeply loved him, never abandoned him and were his saving grace in his lowest times and even after his death. Michael's story is one of tragedy, heartbreak, and loss, but redeemed in the end as a story of love.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I liked the book but...sorry spoiler alert 31 juillet 2016
Par L. R. Siegel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I saw the movie and was very curious about the actual story. Of course, the fact that the " lost child"is dead means that a lot of the story is recreated based on interviews with friends and family. The book is mostly about Anthony aka Michael but I actually was more interested in Philomena and how she dealt with the religious culture that treated her like a criminal. I thought it was a good book and well written but its focus was not exactly as I expected it to be. Ironic that Michael helped to elect people whose policies may well have caused and/or contributed to his death. While baby Anthony seemed so sweet, grown-up Michael was not so likeable ,(and the story of his life went on too long). He should have used his connection to elected officials for the greater good even if it meant risking rejection. Very sad that he and Philomena were kept apart by a vicious, judgemental culture for their entire lives and he never got to hear from her, how loved he really was.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 What a Shame! 8 décembre 2014
Par M P McChesney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was very moved by the Movie and by the amazing forgiving heart of Philomena Lee. I thought the Movie script allowed her to tell us all very clearly how she could forgive such cruelty and I was really hoping to learn more about her in this book. But I was very disappointed in the author's brief depictions of her. And I was angry and disgusted so many times by the interpretations of feelings and of sexuality that the author continually attributed to Michael. I just knew that most of it was blatant sensationalized fiction. I found just now Online, a review of this book by Susan Kavanaugh, one of Michael's longtime friends, and she wrote the very same realizations. What a great shame! The true character of Michael Anthony Hess was probably very fine and rich and worthy of telling, but this author chose not to uncover it. What a shame! I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone but I do still recommend the movie.
