Praise for A Little Ray of Sunshine

“A raw and genuine look at motherhood, A Little Ray of Sunshine is a lovely ode to love in all of its many forms, family lost and found.”
—Ashley Poston, New York Times best-selling author of The Dead Romantics

“An uplifting story of love and gratitude—not to mention frustration, fear, and failure—in all forms of family.”
Kirkus Reviews

Higgins returns with her signature writing style that will make readers laugh, possibly cry, and think deeply about the role of family and motherhood… [This] is a perfectly done novel. Higgins tackles what it means to be part of a family and how family can look very different from person to person. Her signature humor sprinkled into a heavy topic makes this a must-read.”
—Library Journal

“Higgins returns to Cape Cod in this multigenerational story about the enduring bonds of family…Higgins deftly navigates her characters’ complex emotions, including both Harlow and Monica’s points of viewthroughout the book. The women’s inner lives are presented authentically, allowing the reader to understand the mixed feelings of joy, fear, love, and guilt that both women experience. Side stories and romantic subplots add depth and humor, but the emotional journey is the star of this comforting-as-a-cozy-sweater story. Hand this one to fans of Susan Wiggs and Jennifer Weiner.”

“This genuine and uplifting novel follows 18-year-old Matthew, who decides to arrange a summer trip to Cape Cod to meet his birth mother, Harlow—without telling his adoptive mother, Monica. When Matthew walks into Harlow’s bookstore, she gets the shock of a lifetime, and Monica pancis. Soon, even more twists unfold and the women discover that there’s no limit to a mother’s love.”
Woman’s World

I was drawn to this book by its breezy, pretty cover, but the story about love and what it means to be a family is what kept me engaged,’ says Patty Bontekoe, FIRST Executive Editor. Unbeknownst to her family, Monica had a baby when she was 18 and put him up for adoption. So 18 years later, when he walks into the family bookstore she runs, her entire life (and that of his adoptive mother) is turned upside down. ‘I loved this emotional story, which had me laughing, crying and feeling for both moms,’ says Patty. ‘I really didn’t want it to end!'”
