Debbie Ruppenthal’s review of The January Flower

Orla has found her voice here: an exposé – the journey of a soul, woven with mysticism, nature, and a love of life, and life with a capital ‘L’.  In spite of Mary’s privations, this is a story to run, skip and jump your way through.  It is by turns gritty and grounded, hopeful and optimistic and joyful.  The writing has a lyrical quality but it does not dress up the harsh realities or privations in poetry or symbolism;  Mary and Angel are carved out of real life and experience.  This may not be the sort of book you would normally read, but give it a go.  Orla’s story will touch you.  It may even change you.
