‘A counting of blessings and a meditation on how the smallest things can bring the most profound pleasure … A 20-chapter love letter straight from the heart.’ The Sunday Times

‘Shot through with a breezy nostalgia and an enthusiasm for the unexpected joys and daily surprises of old age.’ Irish Mail on Sunday

As she turns 80, Mary O’Rourke writes a letter to 20 people, past and present, close and distant, living and deceased. To her beloved brother, Paddy … to the Athlone Fianna Fáil Women’s Group … to Mo Mowlam … to a young couple embracing on a bridge … to a past professor … to a cousin in America …

Every letter is heartfelt, every letter offers gratitude for the difference the recipient made to Mary’s life. At once universal and deeply personal, Letters of My Life is a book of consideration and appreciation, and offers an illuminating insight into one of Ireland’s best-loved figures.

‘This thoughtful meditation will resonate with readers of all ages.’  Sunday Independent

‘Mary’s novel approach to reminiscing makes an interesting, lively read.’  Irish Examiner

‘Candid, often moving, and offers some extremely interesting glimpses behind the political scene.’ The Sunday Times
