From the number-one best-selling Irish author Rachael English, a warm, heartrending novel, inspired by real events and perfect for fans of Maeve Binchy, Cathy Kelly and Kathryn Hughes.
The box held their bracelets. Her heart held their stories....
For almost 50 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 1960s.
The box contains a notebook holding the details of the babies and young women she met there. It also holds many of the babies' identity bracelets. Following the death of her husband, Katie makes a decision. The information she possesses could help reunite adopted people with their birth mothers, and she decides to post a message on an internet forum.
Soon the replies are rolling in, and Katie finds herself returning many of the bracelets to their original owners. She encounters success and failure, heartbreak and joy. But is she prepared for old secrets to be uncovered in her own life?
"A true storyteller who keeps you turning the pages." (Cathy Kelly)

Ok - not as good as described
Enjoyed this novel, to a point. The plot, setting and characters were believable - if a tad stereotypical. Easy listen.

Truly incredible story
I absolutely loved this book. Although a work of fiction, I am certain there are thousands of women who would heavily relate to alot of its content. Beautifully narrated, full of emotion, happy and sad. I wanted the story to go on and on. Highly recommended.
