Format: Paperback
When Julia Fearon, her boyfriend Charlie and their son Haydn, go to Malaga to meet Charlie's family, Julia is thrilled at the prospect. Her optimism is short-lived when it turns out Charlie's family are incredibly religious and they're pressurising Julia about her upcoming wedding to Charlie.Trouble is, Julia has a secret that could ruin her future. Then tragedy strikes: after an argument with Charlie's abuela, Julia decides to take Haydn to the beach. There, Haydn disappears. Julia is frantic trying to find her son whereas Charlie loses himself in his work to help him get through his tragedy. The question is: Is Haydn alive or is Julia just struggling to come to terms with Haydn's death?

Little Miracles is told in alternating first person chapters between Julia and Charlie and that's an interesting tack for Giselle to take. If there's to be more than one main character in a book, authors generally go third-person, but I thought Giselle alternated her chapters well between the two and I thought the first-person narrative allowed us to really see what was going on in the heads of Julia and Charlie.

I loved Julia straight away. I could totally understand why she felt ostracised with everything going on all around her in Malaga. I did wish that she'd told Charlie and Charlie's family sooner about her secret but bar that, I thought Julia was a great character. Her reaction to her son's disappearance was one I would expect; Giselle wrote about the pain of a mother fabulously well. I was right there at that beach with Julia when she realised Haydn was missing and I never left her side in her bid to discover the truth. I could also see Charlie's point of view.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A powerful and well-written novel about a young couple whose toddler son goes missing, presumed drowned. It's no spoiler to say that, since it's on both the front cover and the blurb at the back. The story is about how the couple, Julia and Charlie, deal with their loss in their different ways, after the initial devastated grief.

It's narrated alternately by Julia and Charlie, and mainly in the present tense. This works well, since it enables us to see each viewpoint from a personal perspective. The past unfolds for Julia during her investigations and questions, so we learn about her childhood as she discovers more about herself and her deepest needs.

I found it hard to put down once I had started. Surprisingly I didn't find it as emotional as I expected, although I was certainly tense, wondering what the outcome would be. And - without giving anything away - I found the inconclusive ending rather disappointing. I would have liked at least one more paragraph.

Overall,I thought it was excellent. Definitely recommended.

Format: Paperback
Read this on the plane on the way to Hong Kong recently, as Giselle Green had kindly sent me the sequel 'Finding You'. I know the novels are written so that they stand alone but I was interested enough to want to read this one first. Personally I felt that having read 'Little Miracles'that I had more empathy with the characters thereby making the sequel more meaningful for me. A very eloquent novel that will tug at your heart strings, the inconclusive ending leaves you thinking and had me immediately reading the sequel.

The protagonists of the story are Julia and Charlie a couple whose young son Haydn goes missing on a beach in Spain and is assumed drowned. After the initial devastation and grief the couple deal with their loss in very different ways. The story is narrated alternately by Julia and Charlie, giving the reader the opportunity to see each viewpoint from the alternative perspectives. Julia has a strong need for answers, which I found quite understandable despite everyone including her husband urging her to move on. It was harder to empathise with Charlie and in some ways his attitude irritated me. He did have a lot of problems on his mind not just his missing son, but his and Julia's relationship with each other and his Spanish based family, plus his highly demanding job. It is not possible to go into more detail without spoiling the novel for those yet to read, so I urge you to do so if you are a fan of contemporary fiction.

Giselle Green is an author that I wish I had discovered way back in 2008, when her her first novel Pandora's Box was first published. So many books and so little time meant that unfortunately I did not read it until a few months ago! Making up for lost time now I am catching up and enjoying her writing style, enough to say that I would now recommend her to anyone that appreciates stories with a moral basis. An author that is a good choice for Book Club selection as her novels evoke a whole range of subjects for discussion.

Having first read Giselle's "Pandora's Box" and thoroughly enjoying it, I was pretty sure I would enjoy "Little Miracles". I wasn't disappointed. This book is a fantastic read!!! I was hooked from the first page. The story is told by both Julia and Charlie and is centered around their little 2 year old boy - Hayden who goes missing in Charlie's hometown of Arenadeluna in Spain. Charlie is tied with work commitments and Julia struggles to feel second best. I am not going to spoil by telling anymore but would strongly recommend it!!!
