  "Boring" by [email protected] (see profile) 05/09/17

Most of the club members found this book informative but boring. A catholic member of the group found the subject matter offensive by using a catholic nunnery as an example but stating at the end of the book that Catholics were not the only ones who ran laundries for wayward girls. Also, the author left you to wonder about the future of the main character as well as some minor characters while focusing on the day to day drudgery.
