About the Author

Michelle Daly was kicked out of school at age fifteen with a reference stating, “Michelle thinks life is one big joke.” She went on to work with children in residential care and in 1972, at nineteen, became the youngest single woman in Britain to obtain legal guardianship of a child; Marie, a seven year-old with mental and physical disabilities. In 1990, they moved to Ireland a country she refers to as her second home, where she home-schooled her two children, Patrick and Anna. An advocate for children’s rights and people with special needs, she lives with Marie in Liverpool. Michelle has also written a book of fiction, I Love Charlotte Brontë, which is available in paperback and kindle editions.

I'm not a very active reader as I'm just normally too busy raising my own daughter. However, I found myself not being able to stop once I started reading this book. I eventually finish reading it in two days! For me, that's record.
I cried, laughed and got angry with Michelle while reading her book. Although I've never seen Michelle in person, I feel that she's now an old friend, a model and a great mother!

This is a marvelous book. It tells the story of what real love is. Michelle was an extraordinary teenager when she fell in love with little Marie. How did such a rare thing happen? God must have given Michelle that love. A little girl who had no one to love her, was embedded into the heart of an warm, caring young woman. Michelle, I admire you so much, and appreciate your book! I will read it again and again, as the years go by. I'm so proud of what you have given, and continue to give a helpless little girl, now a woman called Marie!
