Since childhood Lucy Costigan had felt a deep affinity with the 1920s. The style, the fashion, the music and especially the Charleston all evoked a sense of freedom and joy. Her Aunt Sue had lived during the 1920s, but had tragically died from TB at the age of 20. Lucy had always felt something special for Sue, as though she was close by, guiding her. There was also Lucy’s ...more

A lovely, courageous book, easy to read and enjoy. The very personal, honest, and beguiling story of the authors search for meaning. She shares the long journey towards her truth and her authentic self, her attraction to the 1920's, the Charleston, and the time of" The Great Gatsby".Her relationship and closeness with her Aunt Cha in Inchicore and her adult children, the McGovern cousins, one in particular, Raymond and Rex the family dog.
In her seeking, over the years, she knocked on many doors

‘Bouquet of White Roses’ is the authentic telling of the personal and biographical story of Lucy Costigan, a young Wexford girl, working in Dublin, who at this time in her life is very troubled by many personal issues. In trying to deal with these issues, Lucy, on the advice of some close friends, arranges an appointment with a Spiritual Medium, Brendan O’ Callaghan, whose reputation in providing beneficial spiritual healing comes well recommended. Lucy attends for her session in the afternoon a ...more

It's not often you find a personal account of reincarnation such as Lucy Costigan has described in 'Bouquet of white roses'. It's a mystery she is trying to solve all through the book: Did she indeed live before as her Aunt Sue? Lucy's regression with Dr. Brian Weiss will also, I suspect, be of great interest to readers. I highly recommend this book especially to anyone who feels that there is more to life than just physical presence. ...more

Bouquet of White Roses, quest for truth about Aunt Sue and me, is a well crafted piece of writing strategically delivered telling a true story of actual reincarnation in the person of the author, Lucy Costigan and how it subsequently effects her life throughout the next 30 years.
Lucy, in 1990, already a very troubled soul with a welter weight of personal issues has suddenly been presented with this revelation that she had lived in a past life as her Aunt Sue, her fathers sister.
How can a young g

I have just finished reading this fascinating book on Lucy Costigan's quest to find her true connection with her aunt Sue. I thoroughly enjoyed it and certainly recommend it. The connection between the author and her aunt Sue was very well woven together, culminating in a major revelation that got me thinking a lot about the true meaning of life. It also made me think of how important family is, as the book also explores Lucy's family over several generations and the way one person may affect th ...more

Beautiful true story here about the author's search to find the truth about her connection with her aunt Sue who had died many decades before she was born. Another classic from Lucy Costigan who knows how to keep the reader engaged and enthralled. I whole-hardheartedly recommend 'Bouquet of white roses'. ...more

BOUQUET OF WHITE ROSES by Lucy Costigan

This book is like listening to a good friend telling you a good story. I particularly liked the setting of both Dublin and Rosslare as I am familiar with both, being a Dubliner who holidayed in Wexford. My parents were born in the 1920s and the story ticks the memories of their stories and soon becomes a page turner.

This is an easy read. The photos are great. My father was a golfer, and I adore a book with a family tree as it is so easy to see who’s who an
