The Miracle of Grace – Kate Kerrigan

image - book coverAn emotive but not especially sentimental story of the relationship between a mother Eileen and her daughter Grace.

The revelation of a terminal illness causes Eileen to look back and reassess her life and for Grace to reconsider their mother daughter relationship.

Growing up in rural Ireland in the 1950s and constrained by church and social values of the time, Eileen finds it difficult to express emotion.

Grace, chronically dependent on therapists for ‘self discovery’ through learning of her mother’s life and secrets, comes to understand herself.

A poignant story it is not without humor.
