Spotlight On: Proof of Heaven by Mary Curran Hackett

Proof of Heaven
by Mary Curran Hackett
Published by Harper Collins
Publication Date: November 1, 2011


A mother’s faith, a child’s courage, a doctor’s dedication—a moving and thought-provoking tale of hope, love, and family.

He might be young, but Colm already recognizes the truth: that he’s sick and not getting better. His mother, Cathleen, fiercely believes her faith will protect her ailing son, but Colm is not so sure. With a wisdom far beyond his years, Colm has come to terms with his probable fate, but he does have one special wish. He wants to meet his father who abandoned his beloved mother before Colm was born. 

But the quest to find the dying boy’s missing parent soon becomes a powerful journey of emotional discovery—a test of belief and an anxious search for proof of heaven. 

A magnificent debut novel, Mary Curran Hackett’s Proof of Heaven is a beautiful and unforgettable exploration of the power of love and the monumental questions of life, death, and the afterlife. (from Goodreads)

This book sounds like it is going to rip my heart to pieces. I always think this is a compliment by the way. I love books that bring me to emotional brink, whether that is happy or sad and this book will probably do just that. I wanted to read this one because it a step away from all of the young adult literature I have read recently. Proof of Heaven is out today, so check it out and come back on Friday for Love My Indie where
Mary Curran Hackett shares her favorite independent bookstores.
