In her latest ripped-from-the-headlines tour de force, New
York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf shows how
one small mistake can have life-altering consequences
Veteran social worker Ellen Moore has seen the worst side of
humanityâ€”the vilest acts one person can commit against
another. She is a fiercely dedicated children's advocate and
a devoted mother and wife. But one blistering summer day, a
simple moment of distraction will have repercussions that
Ellen could never have imagined, threatening to shatter
everything she holds dear, and trapping her between the
gears of the system she works for.
Meanwhile, ten-year-old Jenny Briard has been living with
her well-meaning but irresponsible father since her mother
left them, sleeping on friends' couches and moving in and
out of cheap motels. When Jenny suddenly finds herself on
her own, she is forced to survive with nothing but a few
dollars and her street smarts. The last thing she wants is a
social worker, but when Ellen's and Jenny's lives collide,
little do they know just how much they can help one another.
A powerful and emotionally charged tale about motherhood and
justice, Little Mercies is a searing portrait of the tenuous
grasp we have on the things we love the most, and of the
ties that unexpectedly bring us together.
