ABOUT THE BOOK
He might be young, but Colm already recognizes the truth: that he’s sick and not getting better. His mother, Cathleen, fiercely believes her faith will protect her ailing son, but Colm is not so sure. With a wisdom far beyond his years, Colm has come to terms with his probable fate, but he does have one special wish. He wants to meet his father who abandoned his beloved mother before Colm was born.
But the quest to find the dying boy’s missing parent soon becomes a powerful journey of emotional discovery—a test of belief and an anxious search for proof of heaven.
A magnificent debut novel, Mary Curran Hackett’s Proof of Heaven is a beautiful and unforgettable exploration of the power of love and the monumental questions of life, death, and the afterlife.

MY THOUGHTSHands down, the best book I've read this year! This book was amazing, started the book and read cover to cover in one day, just couldn't stop reading. Mary Curran Hackett is a force to be reckoned with and I sincerely hope she's working on a new book. Proof of Heaven is a touching, sad, heartbreaking and yet happy book all at the same time.
Colm is a very grown up little boy with a very big problem and the people closest to him are all struggling as well, but when they come together they are an amazing group and are able to fill each other with love and healing.
I love this book and I think you will too, this book would be an excellent gift...along with a box of kleenex!
