Every baby's bracelet held a mother's secret...
'Utterly moving and compelling' Patricia Scanlan
'A true storyteller who keeps you turning the pages' Cathy Kelly
For almost fifty years, Katie Carroll has kept a box tucked away inside her wardrobe. It dates from her time working as a nurse in a west of Ireland mother and baby home in the 1970s. The box contains a notebook ... and a collection of babies' identity bracelets.
Now, grieving the loss of her husband, Katie makes a decision. The information she possesses could help reunite people with their birth mothers. She posts a message on an online forum and soon the replies are rolling in, from as far away as Boston. Katie encounters success and failure, heartbreak and joy. But is she prepared for shocking secrets to be uncovered in her own life?
