Fiction. Most of us remember the mystery and innocence of first love and its inevitable loss. Far fewer ever have a chance (or the desire, the obsession, or the destiny) to attempt late in life to make whole again what broke apart. This is the story of one of those attempts--the tale of MARY O'HOULIHAN, told with wry humor and affection by author Mike O Connor. In a way, this book is a sequel to O'Connor's 2010 book, UNNECESSARY TALKING, the humorous and spirited tales of a small-town American childhood.
