Now 19, Bitty survives by rummaging through garbage bins for food. She ran away from the orphanage to keep from being raped. She can’t speak because the sisters poured scalding water down her throat several times as a punishment. As a slave, a runaway—she has no future, no hope. Or…does she? Are miracles possible? What would it take to save her from certain freezing death, disease, and starvation on the unforgivable streets of Dungarran?
The Beggar’s Miracle by Joy Ross Davis is dedicated to all the children of Ireland who suffered at the hands of those in the Magdelene Laundries and the Irish Industrial Schools. The writing is pristine and brilliant, the story is timeless—and the hope is contagious.
Inspired by scripture and classic poetry — Psalms and Emily Dickinson, author Joy Ross Davis has visited a time in modern Irish history regarding the Magdalene Laundries personal but not sensational manner because Bitty Brown’s story is a special and separate spiritual experience. A sad time and well done away with, but there is more to the people who suffered. Bitty speaks to and for those individuals.
The rescuing appearance of the Beggar Jude and the old dog, Mr. Jones as well as other prominent characters especially Percy, who becomes Bitty’s benefactor and falls in love with her, but whom we first met in Emalyn’s Treasure.
Like Emalyn, Bitty has a special bit of angelic evidence to cling to as she wends her way through the cold. Her silence makes her unappealing for the ‘attentions’ of the orphanage connected to the Magalene Laundry that arranged for her mother to be lost to Bitty for so many years. Yet without compassionate help from people who are miraculously placed in her path, the escape would not have been possible.
Joy Ross Davis writes in an elegant, memorable style that is a pleasure to read. The inspiring story gives readers an uplift to their day and I highly recommend. I can recommend all of her books for these reasons; it is just nice when we can trust the authors to take us to the good place.
Bitty Brown started her life in an orphanage with a torrid past and dark secrets. The book gives just a touch of mystery combined with an easy read about redemption and God's love.
