Dara Flood sets out to find the father she never knew . . . A funny and moving book, warm and addictive as Marian Keyes.
Dara Flood always says the most interesting thing about her life happened before she was born. Thirteen days before she came into the world, her father walked up the road and never came back.
Now in her twenties, Dara's life has a careful routine. She lives in Dublin with her mother and sister Angel. She has pizza with friends every Wednesday, salsa class every Friday, and sees her boyfriend every Saturday. It's safe and that's the way she likes it.
Then Angel gets desperately sick and Dara's ordered life falls apart. Neither she nor her mother is a compatible match for the kidney Angel needs. So Dara sets out to find the father who could be their last hope. But on the path to uncovering the truth about her father, Dara learns that to let life - and love - in, sometimes you just have to let go . . .
Praise for SAVING GRACE - :
Move over Marian, it's Ciara . . . impressive and highly entertaining [with] one of the most authentic female characters I've read in women's fiction for a long time . . . lots of biting humour and a darker side beneath the laughs. - Irish Independent Review
I loved this . . . it's warm, funny and made me cry (a couple of times). It is also really well written . . . Perfect for a summer's day with not much else on since you'll want to read it in one sitting - Sara Lawrence, Daily Mail
'Hilarious . . . But there's death and guilt, too, in this sometimes dark, tear-jerking novel' **** - Company
So funny and so much fun, it's impossible to believe it's Geraghty's first . . . Warm , moving and hilarious. - Evening Herald, Ireland
