Siobhan Dowd (1960-2007) established the Siobhan Dowd Trust, a registered charity that helps young people access and enjoy literature. Set in Ireland in 1984, A Swift Pure Cry is loosely based on the events of the Kerry Babies case and the tragic death of schoolgirl Anne Lovett. The page displayed shows a vulnerable young girl, failed by her family and community, contemplating travelling to England for an abortion.
