Finding The Rainbow
By Rachel McGrath
Published by Pegasus Elliot Mackenzie Publishers Ltd
Finding the Rainbow is a fascinating and honest insight into a world that most would find difficult to understand, and many would be quietly thankful not to need to. McGrath tells the story of her battle to conceive and carry a baby, with unrestricted honesty.
Rachel McGrath grew up in Brisbane, Australia, where she studied business, before moving to the United Kingdom in her early thirties. She currently lives just north of London, where she met and married her husband, and has a professional career in human resources.

Just stunning. Honest, heartbreaking, frustrating and real. This is everything a good memoir should be.
What an inspirational woman. To put this down on paper for anyone to read is so brave. This is definitely a novel every woman and family should read. Thank you for sharing your story and bearing your heart!
Good luck. Cindy M.
I laughed, cried, got frustrated, felt every moment of this woman's journey. The true essence of a good memoir is when it pulls you in, as though you were there with her along this painful road. What was more heartening was that she bares everything and is quite upfront that there is no happy ending (yet) for her, but that she carries hope that one day! Truly deserves to be recognised and even more so deserves to go through to finals. Thank you Rachel
By opening up her emotions and inner most thoughts to the world Rachel has a way of making you think about conceiving and infertility in a very balanced way. Rachel’s journey so far is clearly full of raw emotion and illogical thoughts but her perspective is one which very much makes others in that position feel that it is ok to feel the way they do. Miscarriages and fertility issues are very much a taboo subject in British society and Rachel’s refreshing openness is a step in to making it more acceptable. Rachel has a way of making you think about stages in your life if you have experienced infertility or not….I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who maybe not experiencing conceiving the way they thought it would ….or quite honestly any woman in her late 20s or early 30s who thinks they have all the time in the world!
A great read and very impressive for a first time author.
Quite simply the most heartfelt story I have ever read. Stunning
A very touching story with a sense of realness. Different from the sometimes too emotional view point . Told with honesty. Good quick read which left me feeling lucky.
Such an inspirational read. For such a heartbreaking subject, you have captured the essence of hope throughout this book!
Brilliant - an amazing true story
Fantastic - I hope this wins
An honest and eloquent emotional journey that will ring true for a multitude of women!
A book selflessly written to share the difficult journey to having a family with infertility problems and the heartbreak on the way. To share this to the benefit of others going through the same experience is invaluable and provdes support that they are not alone. A well written heartfelt book.
A memoir written like a story, you quickly become enveloped in the main character and her desire to be a mother. Written with such poise and elegance!
Very moving and honest
Wonderfully and surprising open.
Spoken from the heart, the author bares everything and gives so much more by writing her story. I was truly inspired to hear how she dealt with such adversity and through it all she kept good humour and faith!
A compassionate, but level headed story, which even aspires readers who cannot relate to the infertility issue.A genuine good read about deeply routed wishes, disappointment, pick me ups, i.e. get on with life even if you are very disheartened. Be strong and consider your options.
Inspiring, motivating and honest. This story is like no other story about loss and grief. I take my hat off to this author who has put her heart on every page!
A heartfelt, personal journey written with compassion by a brave author.
A great read which has helped me understand more about a topic i havent been personally impacted by but so so many friends and family have. It has started to break the taboo.
Amazing book, heartwarming, honest, a tear jerker with lots of laughs too! I hope you win!
Great book. Funny, emotional and insightful. Thanks for sharing your story.
