UK & Canada → Headline Publishing (Ed. Sherise Hobbs & Ciara Doorley)

Happy Birthday, darling girl...

Ever since she can remember, Roisin has received a birthday card in the post, signed with love from the birth mother she has never met.

Brought up by her adoptive parents, Keeley and Doug, Roisin has wanted for nothing, but on her thirtieth birthday a letter comes that shakes her world.

For Keeley, who's raised Roisin as her own, the letter reminds her of a guilty secret she's been hiding for thirty years. 

And for Nell, keeping watch in the lighthouse, the past is a place she dare not go. Until a young runaway arrives seeking shelter, and unwraps the gift of hope for them all...

A glorious read . . . A wonderfully uplifting novel about women's friendship by a writer who understands exactly how women think 

Cathy Kelly

Emotional and heartbreaking . . . A fast-paced story with endearingly warm characters - you'll savour this touching tale 

Candis Magazine, Book of the Month

A moving tale celebrating the bonds between women, Emma Hannigan beautifully captures the difficult and wondrous thing that is loving and learning to let go . . . just a little. An excellent read.

Irish Tatler

Hannigan's novel, much like the vivacious author herself, is brimming with hope, joy and inspiration

This fast-paced and endearing novel is about friendship between women, accepting yourself and trusting your own judgement 


Belfast Telegraph

Restores our faith in human nature and makes us feel warm inside

This is her best novel yet. Her heart and soul was poured into every word of this story and it just radiates from the pages . . . a wonderful, heartfelt, emotive book
