Angels in my hair

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. 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.”


Angels at My Fingertips takes us back to the territory that made Angels in My Hair a million selling, international bestseller. Stories of Lorna’s early life in rural Ireland, of how angels helped and guided her through traumatic events, lead to a detailed description of what angels are like, the different types of angels, how they behave in interact with God and other angels as well as human beings, their role during our lives and after death. Angels at My Fingertips also contains an account of how Joe, her husband, who died young in Angels in My Hair returns to visit her. For the first time Lorna reveals the role of the souls of our loved ones who may return from heaven briefly to help and guide us. Information as detailed as this never been published anywhere before now.


In Stairways to Heaven she tells the story of how she pulled her life back together and how she, an uneducated mother of four, broke her silence and started to spread the angels’ message to the world. Lorna tells us of the future that God envisages for us – and some possible other futures, depending on the decisions we make. ”Everyone must play their part”, she says.


SUNDAY TIMES #1 BESTSELLER Message of Hope from the Angels, Lorna gives us the comfort of knowing that we have guardian angels to support us during our daily challenges, and reveals how we can call on their help to carry us through the difficulties that we all inevitably face — whether it’s loneliness, depression, stress, financial strain or countless other challenges.

  • Since recorded history, certain individuals have sensed, seen, and conversed with angelic presences. Since we are appallingly ignorant about the nature of consciousness, it is premature to dismiss these reports as fantasies, which is too often done. Lorna Byrne’s Angels in my Hair is captivating. It is both a challenge to skeptics and an inspiration to those whose experiences confirm transcendental realities.

  • Of course, it sounds barking, doesn’t it? Seeing Angels? .. The first point that must be made about Byrne is how credible she is – no matter how incredible her story…One can simply read the book and wonder
    Publishing News
  • What Lorna has to say is of universal significance to all of humankind. I have made study of many mystics and spiritual schools of thought over the past forty years, and can say without hesitation that Lorna is a genuine visionary. The message she brings to suffering humanity offers a rare degree of hope and light, in a world that often seems very dark. We are a race with amnesia, and she is helping to restore to us our memory of who we are and why we are here.
