A child given up for shame – a brother she never knew she had.
Eileen was brought up in rural Ireland in the 1950s. In thrall to the church she gives up her beloved baby for adoption.
Eileen holds the secret for forty years, until she is diagnosed with terminal cancer and her daughter Grace accidentally discovers the brother she never knew she had and tries to persuade her mother to reconcile, but, crippled with years of loss, Eileen cannot break the spell of shame.
The Miracle of Grace 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.
