Product Description & Reviews

Cuando la adolescente irlandesa Philomena Lee se queda embarazada en 1952, la envían al convento de Roscrea, en el condado de Tipperary, para que se hagan cargo de ella al considerarla mujer de mala vida. Allí cuida de su bebé durante tres años, hasta que la Iglesia se lo arrebata y lo vende, como a muchos otros, para entregarlo en adopción en Estados Unidos. Aunque la obligan a firmar un documento en el que promete no intentar volver a ver a su hijo nunca más, pasa los siguientes cincuenta años de su vida buscándolo en secreto, sin saber que él también la está buscando desde el otro lado del Atlántico. El hijo de Philomena, rebautizado con el nombre de Michael Hess, se hace mayor y se convierte en un reputado abogado de Washington y en un importante funcionario republicano durante los Gobiernos de Reagan y Bush. Pero es un hombre gay en un partido homófobo, lo que lo obliga a ocultar no solo su orientación sexual, sino también el hecho de que ha contraído el sida. Consciente de que le queda poco tiempo de vida, regresa a Irlanda y al convento donde nació. Su búsqueda desesperada para encontrar a su madre antes de morir tiene consecuencias inesperadas para todas las partes involucradas. Con la misma fuerza narrativa que novelas de la talla de Las cenizas de Ángela o Las hermanas de la Magdalena, Philomena relata la historia real de una madre y un hijo cuyas vidas estuvieron marcadas por las fuerzas de la hipocresía a ambos lados del Atlántico y de los secretos que fueron obligados a guardar. Esta conmovedora historia de Martin Sixsmith, en la que se basa la película homónima, es una impactante narración llena de amor y pérdida, desgarradora pero a la vez claramente redentora. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION New York Times Bestseller. Now a major motion picture starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan and nominated for four Academy Awards: the heartbreaking true story of an Irishwoman and the secret she kept for 50 years. When she became pregnant as a teenager in Ireland in 1952, Philomena Lee was sent to a convent to be looked after as a "fallen woman." Then the nuns took her baby from her and sold him, like thousands of others, to America for adoption. Fifty years later, Philomena decided to find him. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Philomena's son was trying to find her. Renamed Michael Hess, he had become a leading lawyer in the first Bush administration, and he struggled to hide secrets that would jeopardize his career in the Republican Party and endanger his quest to find his mother. A gripping exposé told with novelistic intrigue, Philomena pulls back the curtain on the role of the Catholic Church in forced adoptions and on the love between a mother and son who endured a lifelong separation.
