April's Book: My Secret Mother, by Phyllis Whitsell

When Phyllis Whitsell was just eight months old, her mother died of tuberculosis. At least, that what's Phyllis grew up being told. But Phyllis never believed it was true. She prayed every night for God to take care of her birth mother, holding onto the hope that she was alive and out there, somewhere. Finally, after years of searching, Phyllis finds her birth mother-Bridget, known locally as Tipperary Mary. But the loving reunion Phyllis had hoped for is complicated by a difficult past. My Secret Mother is the extraordinary story of forgiveness and compassion, as a daughter's search for her mother becomes a journey from abandonment into love.
