Celebrating Two New 5 Star Reviews with a #0.99 Deal


Last week I received a HUGE boost, with two new 5 star reviews for my memoir Watching the Daisies.

If you are an author you will understand how reviews give us wings.

Eileen Moynihan’s Review

The first review was written by Eileen Moynihan, who loves to write books for children. She wrote:

“This is an unusual memoir in that it is not only a journey through life, but covers the authors actual physical journeys alongside her spiritual and knowledge journeys. Brigid Gallagher is a seeker who seeks healing for her bodily ailments, sense and guidance for her spiritual and emotional ailments, and knowledge for her intellectual needs. She is open to all knowledge and all people. She has a natural curiosity for all that life offers and draws the reader into her interesting life.
As of someone around the same age I can identify with the different singers and events she mentions.
The suggestions at the end of each chapter are helpful and thought provoking.”

Thank you Eileen. I really appreciate your comments.

Valerie Poore’s Review

She has written the following review:

“It’s taken me a while to read this memoir, but somehow I think it’s fitting as the subtitle of Watching the Daisies is ‘Life Lessons on The Importance of Slow.’

Overall, this is a memoir about healing and self-development. However, the story is really that of Brigid Gallagher’s life and we follow her progress from early childhood in Ireland to a life in Scotland with her family and then back to Ireland again. Throughout the telling of this gentle story of poignant loss and gain, we learn of Brigid’s career in spiritual and holistic healing, which later leads to a new career in horticulture after a number of life changing events.

The book is quite detailed, but what dominates the story is the author’s love of family, her soul-searching for spiritual growth and her quest for a health that seems to evade her. We also travel widely with her to wonderful locations, such as India, Morocco, Bali and Italy, where she seeks out spiritual and healing experiences. What I found particularly intriguing was her openness to different faiths and her ability to embrace aspects of a number of spiritual paths, while remaining a devout Christian.

Altogether, I found Watching the Daisies a profound and moving memoir, and a lovely enriching read.”

Thank you Val.

  1. Ditto Brigid, well done.
    The importance of slow holds so much meaning for me at present as somehow the unusual, life changing circumstances we all share is giving me space to try to make up for lost time; a wish I have often reflected on in my journals.
    Hope all is well with you. So far, so good here 🙏
    Take care ❤️
