"Life is one ceaseless exploration and adventure in learning about loving."
International singing star Mary O'Hara has put together a delightful collection of prose, poetry and song. Over the years she has given others the opportunity to enjoy what has meant most to her. Her choice centres around the theme of love.
Love is the rich source of creativity, laughter, art, romance and friendship, and is found too in sorrow and separation. Each different aspect of love is given a separate chapter, and the author introduces them on a personal note. Thus, "Celebration of Love" provides a unique insight into her own life and faith as well as drawing together both great and then little-known writing, and a galaxy of authors. Thomas Hardy, Joyce Grenfell and C.S. Lewis are among the favourites, and a special feature is the inclusion of previously unpublished material by Richard Selig, Mary O'Hara's husband who died tragically after only fifteen months of marriage.
214 pages. Illustrated with black & white line-drawings throughout with a couple of color plates of the author.
