For as long as she can remember, Lorna Byrne has seen angels. As a young child, she assumed everyone could see the otherworldly beings who always accompanied her. Yet in the eyes of adults, her abnormal behavior was a symptom of mental deficiency.
Today, sick and troubled people from around the world are drawn to her for comfort and healing, and even theologians of different faiths seek her guidance. Lorna is trusted for her ability to communicate with spirits and angels and by sharing her intimate knowledge of the spiritual world she offers a message of hope and love to us all.
Angels in My Hair is an engrossing chronicle of Lorna's incredible life story. Invoking a wonderful sense of place, she describes growing up poor in Ireland, finding work in Dublin, and marrying the man of her dreams only to have the marriage cut short by tragedy. Already a best seller in Ireland, her story gives readers a unique insight into the angelic help that is around us and available to us all the time. As Lorna says, "All you have to do is ask."
In this uplifting autobiography, a modern-day Irish mystic shares her vivid encounters and conversations with the angels and spirits she has known her entire life.

Lorna Byrne's narrative style has a guileless quality that can be difficult to adjust to. The first half of the book focuses heavily on events of her childhood and early adulthood and her tendency to describe actions in detail can make it a bit heavy going (I rang my Da. He said Hello. I said Hello.) However, it is exactly this same simple narrative style that makes her descriptions of her interactions with angels so beautiful and haunting. Hers is a story of courage, faith, perseverance and inspiration. Well worth the listen and it will stay with you afterwards.
I never read the print version, but I really enjoyed listening to the Audio version and I would highly recommend this to anyone. It kept my attention and the Narrator has a very relaxing and soothing voice. I thought it was great.
It's a good thing the reader had such an engaging voice and Irish lilt. It carries the listener over some very slow spots where experiences are recounted in painful detail. Overall the story is a wonderful one and left me feeling very inspired. It does take a bit of patience to get through some of the spots though.
I really enjoyed the book, it was told from Lorna's point of view and began right from when she was a child. This book left me with a great feeling knowning that beyond us there is more that what we can perceive or imagine. Call it what you may, but, it's there, helping us when we need the help. I recommened this book to anyone who is on the searching path.
I have an undergraduate degree in philosophy and a Master's Degree in Professional Writing from Maharishi University of Management, am author of THE RELUCTANT VEGETARIAN COOKBOOK, and am an avid reader/listener.
I am widely read regarding historical, scholastic, metaphysical and theological and scientific spirituality, and I dislike religion per se so am not prone to take things on faith and have never read things about angels (at least that wasn't scholastic). But this book has done more to fill me with faith and a personal sense of relationship with the invisible than anything I've ever read. I know that what Byrne writes is true, for her descriptions of angels parallels descriptions of plant devas (energies that help plants to grow) and a host of things too large to discuss here so I can't
I am a fan of Mike Dooley and friends, so I became aware of Lorna Byrne through his, "Notes from the Universe" daily emails. Most people in my life are not aware of Mike, so as he knows, I probably wouldn't recommend this book or any of his books to friends or family, but if you're already interested in what he calls 'woo woo', sure, it's worth a listen, especially on a long drive - which is when I listen to Audible the most. I keep an open mind about 'woo woo' and enjoy listening to this type of book (after life, NDEs, etc) like other folks watch junk television.
I would be interested in hearing more from her, though not my first priority.
While other reviewers loved her performance, I found it rather grating and too high pitched. I am well accustomed to various accents, enjoy most, just not hers so much, on this title anyway.
Sure, given other books in this genre have been made into movies (Heaven is for Real, etc). It has the potential to be very interesting and well done, with Sarah Bolger as Lorna.
I definitely found it worth a listen.
this book helped me know that we are never alone. God provides us with constant help
I LOVE Lorna Byrne and I am going to meet her in Boston in February 2017! Thanks for sharing your gift with the world Lorna! I feel my Angels daily around me and I talk to them all the time! Thanks for the confirmation!
I was captured by the story it was very heartfelt! I can't believe the stories Lorna told I couldn't stop listening. She answered questions about life that we all ask. I love the love story between her and Joe.
I recommend this book to my mom I feel she will enjoy this as much as I did.
I gave this book 5 stars because it's the best one I ve ever heard! The voice on the audio was beautiful. I loved Sila's soothing voice I loved her convincing tone and I loved her Irish accent. Exceptionally well read!
