Waiting for the Miracle

Anna McPartlin’s new novel is an uplifting and emotional exploration of motherhood, filled with unique and unforgettable characters, as funny as it is moving, and as poignant as it is wise.


Caroline has hit rock bottom. After years of trying, it’s clear she can’t have children, and the pain has driven her and her husband apart. She isn’t pregnant, her husband is gone and her beloved dog is dead.

The other women at her infertility support group have their own problems, too. Natalie’s girlfriend is much less excited about having children than her. Janet’s husband might be having an affair. And then there’s Ronnie, intriguing, mysterious Ronnie, who won’t tell anyone her story.


Catherine is sixteen and pregnant. Her boyfriend wants nothing to do with her, and her parents are ashamed. When she’s sent away to a convent for pregnant girls, she is desperate not to be separated from her child. But she knows she might risk losing the baby forever.

About the Author

International bestselling author Anna McPartlin has been writing heart-breaking yet uproariously uplifting novels since 2006.

In recent years she has turned her attention to scriptwriting for TV serial dramas featured on BBC UK, RTE Ireland and A&E America.

Anna’s first children’s book and a labour of love ‘Fearless Five,’ is due to be published by Bonnier Zaffre in May 2019.

Anna describes herself as a feeder and a lazy workaholic. She’s happily married to a very loud musician named Donal and is mammy to four spoiled and flatulent dogs.
