A good book but I'm not sure how accurate it is. According to articles [allegedly] written by Annette Dionne on the 'Quintland' website the girls loved their parents, their father sent them beautiful Christmas and birthday cards [as adults] and their mother made a beautiful Christening shawl for her children. According to the book they couldn't wait to get away from their family home and hated living there.
