Amazon #1 Inspirational Irish Memoir

All Author cup of coffee2018 ended on a terrific high for me, as my memoir “Watching the Daisies” spent a total of 16 days through the end of November and into December, at #1 on Amazon US under Inspirational Irish Memoirs.

In 2019, it has already spent 10 days at #1 on Amazon US and 8 on Amazon UK!

I am absolutely thrilled.

50 Amazon Reviews

On 27 December, my 49th review was posted on Amazon. The year ended on another high, when I received my 50th review on 30 December!

Here my last two Amazon reviews for 2018:

“I read Brigid’s book in two days, it was so compelling I could hardly put it down. Beautifully written it takes you on a fascinating ride on the roller coaster that is her life…you learn about love, loss and grief, healing progress and set-backs, struggles and small steps to victory. This is a very down-to-earth description of a life with lots of challenges and ways to manage them. Brigid’s vivid language and personal insights let you join her emotionally and spiritually on her way to healing. She also lets you take part in her beautiful travels and see the world through her eyes with a sense of wonder and thankfulness. I found her memories both inspiring and humbling and I can only recommend them to anybody who faces challenges and is bitter and angry about them. Brigid’s example may help you to reconcile yourself with the life you have been given. Watching the daisies has left me feeling better and more at peace.”

“This is a great book for people trying to cope with chronic illnesses, and also for those on a spiritual path. Like Brigid, I have spent over 20 years looking for a diagnosis, and during those 20 years, I have looked in many places for guidance and relief. I love her openness and willingness to share everything – this brings so much comfort and support knowing I am not alone on this journey.”

Thank You
