By Lincs Reader TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 6 Aug. 2008
Format: Paperback
There does seem to be lots of novels around 'mother/daughter relationships' around at the moment, but I think this one stands out amongst them.

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.

This book grabbed me at the first page and as I read on I felt like I was getting to know the characters intimately, I liked them both very much and I didn't want it to end.

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.

This is the story of a relationship between mother and daughter. We know from the prologue that the mother, Eileen, is dying. Despite this, the writing is not overly sentimental. The book gives a very good insight into the feelings and characters of Eileen and her daughter, Grace, and the past experiences which have influenced their behaviour and helped to make them what they are. I thoroughly enjoyed Kate Kerrigan's book: it was easy to read, sometimes humorous and, most importantly for me, I could identify with the characters.

This is a heartwarming book, and thoroughly enjoyable. Whilst I personally prefered "Recipies for a Perfect Marriage" for its leassons about our expectations of love (which sadly is not available as an ebook currently), "Miracle of Grace" also has its important messages about our relationships. Not to be missed.

This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review, but this is one of the best books I have ever read, I finished it in 1 day. I really got involved with the characters who were very believable. The story line is fantastic and the flow of the book is just great. This is the second book I have read by Kate Kerrigan and cannot wait for her to bring out another one.

"Miracle of Grace" is a moving, engaging, sad, uplifting and all round good story - unputdownable until I had finished it in the early hours of the morning! As an adoptee I found that Kate Kerrigan's insight into the mind of a birth mother matched so much of the things my own birth mother told me. My own adoption journey hasn't ended yet and I can only hope that my siblings will react to me the way Grace's brother did. Apart from the adoption story, Kate captured perfectly the essence of a mother/daughter relationship with all its ups and downs. All in all, I loved it!
