This autumn bestselling author of Just Mary and former politician Mary O’Rourke is sharing the letters of her life. Mary will be doing a number of signings and special talks to mark her second book Letters of My Life.

 

About the Book

 

As she nears 80, Mary O’Rourke reflects on her life and its universal themes through letters. In her new book Mary O’Rourke looks back over her life in the form of 20 letters to people who have made an impression on her - from her childhood growing up in Athlone to her college days in Maynooth, to those who supported and mentored her during her political career, the friends who have sustained her in good times and bad and family members who mean the most. What emerges is a thoughtful meditation on the universal themes in life that touch us all – love, loss, facing adversity and the passing of time among them.
