An extraordinary story of hope and survival. In January 1966, Kate Howarth gave birth to a healthy baby boy at St Margaret's Home for unwed mothers in Sydney. In the months before the birth, and the days after, she resisted intense pressure to give up her son for adoption, becoming one of the few women to ever leave the institution with her baby. She was only sixteen years old. What inspired such courage? In Ten Hail Marys, Kate Howarth vividly recounts the first seventeen years of her life in Sydney's' slums and suburbs and in rural New South Wales. Abandoned by her mother as a baby and then by 'Mamma', her volatile grandmother, as a young girl, Kate was shunted between Aboriginal relatives and expected to grow up fast. A natural storyteller, she describes a childhood beset by hardship, abuse, profound grief and poverty, but buoyed with the hope that one day she would make a better life for herself. Frank, funny an incredibly moving, Ten Hail Marys is the compelling true story of a childhood lost, and a young woman's hard-won self-possession. 303 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
