Summary
Ten Hail Marys tells the story of a childhood beset by hardship, abuse, profound grief, poverty, emotional ambivalence and more than enough unpredictable turns of events in any young life. While at times shocking in her frankness, Howarth is never self-pitying or bitter. Her natural gift for storytelling, her cast of larger-than-life characters, including Mamma (her grandmother), whose presence looms large from the outset, her vivid sense of place and dark understated humour make Ten Hail Marys one of the most compelling memoirs of the year
Summary
An extraordinary story of courage and survival in the tradition of Angela's Ashes. Ten Hail Marys follows the first seventeen years of Kate Howarth's life in Sydney and country New South Wales. Raised by various Indigenous relatives, she is abandoned by her mother then her grandmother
