The last thing she wants is a social worker, but when Ellen's and Jenny's lives collide, little do they know just how much they can help one another. A powerful and emotionally charged tale about motherhood and justice, Little Mercies is a searing portrait of the tenuous grasp we have on the things we love most, and the ties that unexpectedly bring us together.Originally published in 2014.Don't miss Heather Gudenkauf's newest novel NOT A SOUND, out May 30, 2017!
