Betrayed by her lover and rejected by her family, Esther Doyle leaves the wide open spaces of Connemara for the cramped, steamy Magdalen laundry at the Holy Saints Convent in Dublin. Life is hard, but Esther has little choice. The convent is her only refuge, and its orphanage will provide a home for her unborn child. Despite the harsh realities of life, Esther finds support in this community of women. Learning from their experiences and mistakes, she comes to realise her own strengths and determines to survive. More than that, she plans to realise a new life, for herself and her baby, beyond the grey walls of the Convent.
