Author(s): GLENNON Una
In 1997, the murder of her daughter Ciara left a mother and her family shattered by grief. Ciara's Gift, expressed with honesty and insight, is the story of the mother's often lonely search for meaning after this cruel and devastating event. In a series of deeply moving and thought-provoking memories and reflections, Una Glennon weaves us through the shadowland of grief to eventually emerge with a deeper understanding and acceptance of suffering and the fragility of life. It is the book she would never have wished to write but became compelled to write, as a gift from her daughter to every parent who has lost a child.
