Little Miracle: An poignant, uplifting novel about adoption and a mother's love Kate Kerrigan

How do you break your daughter's heart?

Little Miracle is a poignant, but ultimately uplifting, novel that reveals a unique relationship between a mother and her daughter, and tells of a woman whose life has been restricted by the mores of duty, honour, and religion.

Growing up in 1950s rural Ireland, young Eileen is bound by the unspoken rules of her tight-knit community: church, virtue and family above all else. So when Eileen, in thrall to the church, falls pregnant, she gives her beloved baby up for adoption.

Forty years pass and Eileen still harbours her secret. That is, until she is diagnosed with terminal cancer and her daughter, Grace, discovers the brother she never knew she had by chance. Grace tries to persuade her mother to reconcile, but crippled with years of loss, Eileen cannot break the spell of shame and regret.
