Wendy (Philomena) Green announces her newly published memoir, MIRROR IMAGE.
“When the silence of my childhood was let out in the sun, everything exploded around me and I was propelled back to the bastard child living in poverty-stricken rural Ireland during and after WWII. They called me Lily McCarthy, but I didn’t look like a McCarthy, and I never felt I belong in the family. All my young life, I waited in fear for the woman in the motorcar to come and take me to the orphanage. It was many years later, when my children pursued their Irish heritage, that I discovered my true identity and met my mirror image.”
