Child, Unwanted (Margaret of Castello)
FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
NO ONE’S ADOPTING SCARFACE. I’M NOT THAT DUMB.
Abandoned by everyone in his life and scarred from a failed abortion attempt, Miri struggles to believe his new foster family could really want him. When a devastating accident changes everything, all hope seems gone—until a young woman once equally unwanted starts visiting him in hospital. Can ‘Little Margaret’ teach Miri that his life is still worth living, now more than ever? Friends in High Places is a short fiction series that presents saints’ biographies in the context of imaginary teenagers’ lives. The stories are written primarily to entertain, with inspiration and education thrown in for free!
"It comes across as neither preachy nor patronizing and she gives real answers to hard questions, without hiding from their hardness."
Saint Margaret of Castello is an incorrupt saint!
