Description

Happy Birthday, darling girl...

When Roisin returned home from France to the seaside village of Ballyshore heartbroken, she threw herself into fulfilling her lifelong dream of running her own artisan cafe. Five years on, her love life is still on ice but Nourriture, her cafe and delicatessen, is thriving.

Then, on her thirtieth birthday, instead of the annual card from her birth mother, a woman she's never met, Roisin receives a letter signed with love, which turns her world upside down.

While she absorbs the contents of the letter, her adoptive mum Keeley grows increasingly worried that its arrival will raise questions about the secret she's been hiding from Roisin for years. A secret only one other person knows ...

As the women face truths about the past, they discover that the most precious gift of all is the love between a mother and a daughter. But will they be able to let that love light the way home?

About Emma Hannigan

Emma Hannigan was the beloved and bestselling author of thirteen novels, including the No.1 bestseller Letters to My Daughters.
Her bestselling memoir Talk to the Headscarf was updated and revised as All To Live For: Fighting Cancer. Finding Hope.
In 2007 Emma was diagnosed with breast cancer and her eleven-year battle with cancer began. As an ambassador for Breast Cancer Ireland Emma worked to dispel the fears around cancer and spread hope about new treatments. In February 2018 Emma shared that her team of dedicated doctors had exhausted all avenues in terms of her treatment. She launched a social media campaign #HelpEmmaHelpOthers to raise EURO100,000 for Breast Cancer Ireland. Two weeks later, shortly before her death, Emma's target had been reached. In the final months of her life, Emma completed her thirteenth novel, The Gift of Friends, sending her acknowledgements to her editor just days before she passed away.
