Product Description

Review

An unflinching account of the relentless march of a dreadful disease...compelling (Irish Mail on Sunday)

Written in simple and forthright prose, [An Act of Love] depicts a formidable character who may have ultimately lost her legal battle but could count herself as a survivor in the truest sense of that word... Brave and touching (Sunday Business Post)

There are books that should be written and books that need to be written and then there are books like An Act of Love, that push and fight their way out into the world against all the odds (Anne Enright Irish Independent)

Remarkable (Irish Times)

Book Description

'It is many years since I first read Marie Fleming's account of growing up in Donegal, but her story stayed with me and it is with a pang of great pride I see it finally in print, along with all the joys and sorrows that followed. The heart of a writer beats in these sentences, and a writer's hard work is seen on every page: tell it straight, keep it true, let people know.' ANNE ENRIGHT

I loved this poignant book. I had watched the court case on the tv news and was very interested to know more about Marie herself. What a wonderful brave, caring woman and her family must be so proud of her. A must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Remarkable brave and funny woman. 19 April 2014
By m lyons
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book about a very brave woman. We all came to know her as a woman with Multiple Scleroses and who went through the courts here in Ireland for the right to die when she chose.that the time was right for her. Her case was not successful but she certainly raised the issue and received great admiration when she appeared in court everyday. But her early life was equally interesting and I found this part of the book a great read. I will just say buy this book. You wont be disapointed
