Ciara’s Gift by Una Glennon
In 1997, the murder of her daughter Ciara left a mother and her family shattered by grief. Ciara's Gift 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 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.
