My Angels and Me

My Angels and Me

This inspirational book by Inez McPadden who was originally O’Callaghan from Drumshanbo has been on sale online for some weeks and getting great feedback. Now it begins its publicity campaign in Ireland, America and Canada. It is a true story that deals with issues predominantly affecting women namely career, marriage, children and motherhood. According to the book’s editor, Rick Johnsson, “Inez reassures us that one person at a time and with the help of our guardian angels, we can each find our purpose in the world and through the inner peace that emerges, a wider world peace will emerge. She is indeed convicing”. This book was written from the heart and meant for the soul. It will be launched in Mulvey’s, Carrick-on-Shannon on Saturday March 9th next. It would make a lovely gift and a joy to read. We wish Inez every success with this lovely book. It is available online at sites like Amazon, Barnes and Nobles and Waterstones, to name but a few.
