“Through the eyes of the complex Danielle – at once spiky, funny, and hurting – O’Leary explores familial truth and grief with keen observation. The Heart Stone is a tender and moving story which shines a light on the healing power of human connections.”

Danielle is used to her Daddy not being there. Sort of. Weekends: somethings he turns up, sometimes he doesn’t. So when he dies suddenly and she realises that she’s never, ever going to see him again why does she feel so lost? And how come nobody noticed?

This is a book for teachers, parents, therapists, indeed for anybody caring for young people. Told from a child’s point of view The Heart Stone gives a unique insight into the minds of a grieving child, a grief often unseen and misunderstood by the adults in her world. Ultimately, it is a story of hope and the power of being listened to by a caring adult
