This is the best book that I have read. I came across it in time of need and I truly believe that God's Angels lead me to it. It has changed the way I look on life and has certainly changed my life arround. God's Angels have proven to me again and again that they exist and this has given me hope that I will get better throughout my cancer treatment over the last five years. I could write a book myself about all the Angel Experiences that I have had which now I can share with other people, somtim ...more
In a world that has been well and truly blinded by materialism and dangerously dark themes that our lives are nothing but a fluke, Lorna Byrne ignites the light of hope that every human being is longing to hear. That yes we are all much more than flesh and blood, we are soul and children of the almighty with many hidden and locked up infinite possibilities to raise our consciousness above the mundane slavery of worshipping money and things.
As at the end of every astrological Age Pisces where peo
This is a delightful story about a woman who speaks with angels. The author's take on what the "truth" is about God and Satan is only slightly off-putting, as after describing her perspective, she does not insist that others should embrace it. Although she does mention God throughout, the open-minded reader can easily take it for what it is: one of many labels given to the universe/supreme being/superconscious/etc.

The story wends its way through the author's life, starting with her childhood and

This book sounds more like New Age Philosophy than an actual CHRISTIAN. The angels that the author describe sound like the little cherubs that were a fad several years ago. The to actually say that she is a Catholic but not even talk about accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord & Savior. This book is nothing more than New Age Philosophy that is a fad and will be gone in several more years. Sorry but this book sounds more like fiction than any thing that actually happened in real life. Also when ...more
The book is a good example of New Age spirituality.
Byrne claims that she has been seeing and talking to angels since she was born.
She also claims that she speaks to ghosts.
One religion is as good as another.
Elisha the O.T. Prophet, became an angel.
God forgives everyone and all go to heaven.
She claims she saw God face-to-face, twice.
The body and soul to become more united and eventually become one.
being murdered could be retribution for an act committed in a past life.
Don't waste your money.

International best-selling Memoir of Lorna Byrne..... This sweet Irish woman and mother, whom some might call a mystic, has written very simply about her interesting and unusual life experiences. One factor that sets her life apart from most of the rest of us is that while she was growing up, she was called "retarded," an inadequate label for mystifying and serious learning difficulties that I suspect reflect neurological wiring differences. She was taken out of school, when she was -- I believ
Oke, first of all i need to say this review is based on my opinion regardless of religion and so.

I really loved this book, it touched something inside of me and really moved me.

I love lorna's writing, it is very easy to read and very easy to visualize, she explains everything in details and i am impressed by her memmories.

Now the thing is.
I really believe lorna sees angels and such. But i dont, so it is verh hard for me to accept this story as a truth and decided to read the book as a fiction
This is a wonderful book about angels. You must read the whole book to understand it fully. Angels are real, they are all throughout the Bible. Every religion on earth has mention of angels. The Bible says that God created all things, visible, and invisible. It talks about his creation of the angels, and their role to serve him, and to be his messengers and our protectors here on earth. This book has changed a lot of peoples lives just by simply reading it, and knowing that they are not alone, t ...more

„Ființele umane sunt mai mult decât carne și oase, și atunci când devii conștient de asta și începi să crezi că ai un suflet, legătura ta cu îngerii înflorește.”

„Dacă acea pasăre cade și se lovește, nu va simți toată durerea căzăturii, deoarece Dumnezeu va simți 99% din ea. Dumnezeu simte tot ce se întâmplă cu fiecare pasăre în parte și este la fel și cu noi - când se întâmplă ceva care ne rănește, simțim doar o fracțiune din durere. Dumnezeu simte restul și o îndepărtează.”

I like to think I have a guardian angel. Lorna Byrne is an Irish mystic and tells readers that she is surrounded by angels. She explains in what form they appear to her and the ways in which they have helped her and others during difficult times. I'm personally open to this kind of book but not sure it would convince a non-believer.....
It's very interesting point of view of someone who sees Angels in everyday life everywhere.

Have to admit it's bit harder to imagine life of Lorna, even tho I believe in something bigger and wiser than us humans, not totally compatible with view of Angels with real wings, etc... still book and real life in past century including troubles Lorna has to go through while not being allowed to tell everyone what she sees is something extra ordinary. It's hard to believe you have advisors on every step
Wonderful account by a modern day mystic of God's messengers all around us. It gives hope and encouragement that even though we don't see them, they are here in great abundance to minister to us for the greater glory of God.
I enjoyed this book very much. It is a very sweet story full of hope. I believe in miracles. I believe that there are countless angels among us, whether they choose to be visible or not. Thank you angels!

I wish i could rate it more than five touched me deeply . I know this sound s cheesy but i truly believe in angels now!(and lorna bryne is irish!!!)
Very Good book loved hearing about all the angels and I believe in angels. Great message for everyone to hear from the angels....

I loved this book. It was interesting and inspiring to read about this woman who sees and speaks with angels. She is absolutely right when she tells us to talk and ask our angels for more help in our lives. I am trying not to have any doubts about what she has written, but a couple things have crossed my mind. First, could this be real or was it written just to make us feel good? Second, how does she remember all of these events so clearly in her life? Did she keep a diary? What does the church ...more
Very bland and disjointed writing style.
Not biblical based as far as what the bible tells us about angles and the way to eternal life.
Mrs. Byrne seemed to want to sell a lot a books and to do this not offend anyone along the way.
The chapter on America seemed a very strange add on to me. Again to sell more books?
Every time a chapter seemed to drag on to long I kept having thoughts that she suffered from a mental illness.
It was interesting to learn about her upbringing during very difficult time

Excellent book a must read

Like a Muppet I Read Stair way to Heaven first. So wish i had read this one first. I have never in my life felt so emotional whilst reading a book. The story of Lorna's private life touch me so much. I have started to try and listen for my Guardian Angel Cory.. Even asked him to give me a sign that he had done what i had asked. And today it happened the top of my hair felt like static. That's never happened before. Very touching Life Story. I've told my Dad about this book and now he wants to re ...more
I cannot imagine living the way this author has with the angels so directly and vividly involved in her life. But like most people, I have caught whispers of the angels at times in my life, and if this book has done anything, it has assured me the whispers are real. It has even brought me a little closer to a memory of my own early relationship with an angel as a very young child that still remains just beyond my grasp yet I know it is there, and I am hopeful that I may yet be permitted to recal ...more

A ella, Dios y los ángeles le dieron una pluma.
A mi, su libro.

Hay libros de todo tipo:
-Los que te ayudan a pasar el rato; están bien pero no más.
-Los que te hacen pensar; haces miles de apuntes en hoja tras hoja y sientes, una vez terminado, que has descubierto uno de los secretos del universo.
-Los que amas con locura; aquellos que por más que te han hecho llorar como loca, gritar como hísterica o reír como si hubieras perdido un tornillo, han sabido agregarle ese "alguito" que le faltaba a t
If you believe in angels, you will love this book. It is Lorna Byrne's autobiography, and in it she explains her ability to see angels and be advised by them for all her life. She grew up in a poor town in Ireland, and is now telling her story. She is in her fifties, and no longer worries that people will intrude on her family. She was deemed "retarded" all those years ago, because she preferred to converse with her angels and did not interact with her family or friends too much. I found it a li ...more

Lorna Byrnen enkeleitä hiuksissani herättää monenlaisia ajatuksia. Voiko kaikki tämä olla totta?
Lorna Byrne on pikku tytöstä lähtien nähnyt enkeleitä, siksi hänet miellettiin lääkärissä ja sukulaistensa silmissä jälkeenjääneeksi. Lorna eli lapsuutensa enkeleiden ympäröimänä, enkelit näyttivät hänelle asioita ja tapahtumia, opettivat elämää. Lorna ei ensin ymmärtänyt etteivät kaikki muut ihmiset näe enkeleitä samalla tavalla kuin hän. Kirjassaan hän kertoo, että jokainen pikku lapsi näkee enkelei
I think the author protests too much that she is not as "simple" as her family and teachers made her out to be in her youth because I think it is her "simpleness" (evident in her manner of expression) that makes this book work at all. I got the sense that it was her innocence--her simplicity--that allowed Byrne to connect with the spirits around her in the way she did/does. I have no doubt that she believes in all she sees and experiences, for I also believe in the existence of angels (though pe ...more
Really mixed feelings on this one. I would probably give it 2 1/2 stars, but I will come back and review it after we discuss it in book club this week. I will say that I am skeptical of the authors perceptions of her experiences. I know others who have had similar experiences, and while I believe that they have truly experienced something, I'm not sure that "truth" is what they experienced. This book touches deeply on the spiritual nature of human beings, and tries to reconcile that with the nat ...more

Oops -I thought i saved my review - I'll try again. In Angels in my Hair, Lorna (written in the first person) recounts the whole of her life, having been able to see and talk with angels and spirits from her earliest memories. The author describes angels having her witness events from an angelic perspective, and coming to tell her of events to come, and what she is to do about them (frequently it is only to witness). I thoroughly enjoyed Lorna's voice - she is a gentle, sweet soul, a mystic (Iri ...more
A lovely read, although sometimes I had a bit of an issue with the writing style. Definitely comes from a more spiritually based place than religious, as most of my super religious friends think it's blasphemy. I'm glad she decided to write this book and recommend this book to all as a new perspective (even if you don't believe it).
Katja Rusanen
This book touched my soul. It is beautifully written, it is an amazing story.
It made me think that there are more than what we can see. It brought my trust back that angels are truly there for us and I started to connect and listen to my guardian angel more. Thank you, Lorna!
I recommend this book for everyone.
Georgina Ball
This is an unusual book, it's quite a good read despite being preachy at times. It basically is the life story of a woman called Lorna and the 'angels' she sees. It's interesting because of the time she was growing up in Ireland and her story, without the angels, would have been quite interesting alone. Depending on your religious point of views this book may relate to others more than it did to me as I am not religious and never have been. It does make you think 'yeah, it'd be nice to think the ...more

Such amazing imagery.

Such amazing imagery.

I thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of this story, the new way to look at things. This is the last book my mom ever read, and it is very fitting!
