In this story, Anne-Marie Quinn collects the memories of her young life into a memoir of beating the odds of a poor childhood in 1960s England in order to escape to the United States as a young woman. Anne-Marie Quinn was born and raised at the beginning of a lasting civil war between the Protestants and Catholics in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Despite the environmental clashes that surrounded her, she remembered a pleasant and fulfilled childhood among family until an unforeseen split between her parents caused her mother, Josephine, to unlawfully kidnap her and one other child to England. At only nine years old, Anne-Marie subsisted through the idea of a new family and step-father, the eventual release from her own mother to the English court system, and the experience of foster homes and convents, all the while trying to find her way back to Northern Ireland for her father and lost brothers. Its a story that accounts for Anne Maries survival; wearing rags for clothes, escaping molestation, living through the ridicule of being poor and Irish in London, regularly begging for money outside an English pub with her younger brother, and surviving the wretched environment of a Magdalene laundry convent, among many other happenings. She not only subsisted through these tribulations and moved to America, but lived to share the details of them. Anne-Marie now lives in Boca Raton, Florida after raising three children and helping them succeed through university. She has recently rewarded herself by completing an associates degree at Palm Beach State College in 2013 which she is now using towards a bachelors degree in Sociology at Florida Atlantic University. She has not only enjoyed writing her first book, but inspired herself to continue and write more in the future. Liberally written and distressingly frank, Josephines Secrets is an unforgettable reminder that regardless of social status, the American dream is still within reach for those who have the desire and the determination to succeed.
