Ashes of My Dreams

  Author:   Stella Shepard    
  Publisher:  Acorn Press

Pregnant, abandoned by her lover, and cut off from her family, free-spirited and independent Gracie is determined to keep her baby and to raise him on her own.

Protecting Elijah Blue from the nuns eager to adopt him out to a “better” home is only Gracie’s first battle…

It takes a whole community of colourful neighbours and friends—and the dream-wisdom of spirits that protect her—for Gracie to navigate the cruel and impoverishing systems that judge and harass her as a single mom on PEI.

She gets through with pride, grit, and humour–but nothing can protect her from her growing son’s desire to know his father’s identity.
