The Miracle of Grace is very well written, it is funny and poignant but not sentimental or overly sweet. The characters of both Grace and Eileen are so well drawn, all of their faults are documented but they are so well rounded that you cant help but love them both.
What follows after Grace discovers the list that Eileen has made is a beautiful portrait of Eileen's life, growing up in 1950s Ireland, falling pregnant, marrying a violent and abusive man, and subsequently becoming a single parent.
Eileen looks back over her life and re-assesses what she has left and what she wants to do with it.
The relationship between mother and daughter is often difficult, Grace is often annoyed and irritated by Eileen and then struggles with her guilty feelings.
Although very sad, the novel is kind of uplifting and very satisfying.
For me, Kate portrayed the true nature of a mother/daughter relationship, or at least one that I identify with very much... "I love you but you annoy the hell out of me!" And I felt that there was a deeper message about learning to love and accept my Mum just the way she is, despite her funny ways.
I'm going to pass this onto my Mum now so she can enjoy it too.
