Our Book Spotlight today features A Mother’s Song by Cleo Lampos.
A Mother’s Song presents the life of Irish immigrant Deirdre O’Sullivan who has to decide whether to give two of her children life or let them die with her in the tenement. In anguish, Deirdre releases them to the care of the orphan trains as she awaits her fate. Neighbors help her to regain her strength, and Deirdre becomes an active advocate for the working women at the hotel. Yet, every day, her heart aches and yearns for the children she gave up. She never forgets that they are missing from her life.
Cleo Lampos is an author who is well acquainted with abandonment issues. Her father died when she was three, and later she had a time in foster care. But her mother always tried to keep the family together, and sought to maintain a loving structure.
