For anyone who has ever wondered about the mysteries that lie beyond everyday experience, or doubted the reality of the afterlife, Angels in my Hair is a moving and deeply inspirational journey into the unseen world.

For as long as she can remember, Lorna Byrne has seen angels. As a young child, she assumed everyone could see the otherworldly beings who always accompanied her. Yet in the eyes of adults, her abnormal behavior was a symptom of mental deficiency. Today, sick and troubled people from around the world are drawn to her for comfort and healing, and even theologians of different faiths seek her guidance. Lorna is trusted for her ability to communicate with spirits and angels – and by sharing her intimate knowledge of the spiritual world she offers a message of hope and love to us all.

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.”

In this uplifting autobiography, a modern-day Irish mystic shares her vivid encounters and conversations with the angels and spirits she has known her entire life.

Lorna talks about Angels in my Hair:

“This is a life story that’s very different to any that has been written before.

It’s about a person living between two worlds: the human world and the spirit world. I’m human of course, but for a number of reasons as a child I found it easier to live in the spirit world than in the human world.

This book isn’t based on anything anyone else has written; the only source of knowledge for this book is the angels. They taught me everything I know. As a child, I found learning very hard and I have dyslexia, so as a result I am uneducated in conventional terms. I only read books with difficulty and so I haven’t been influenced by other people’s thinking. This book is the wisdom and truth that the angels have given me as I have grown throughout my life.

I may not be able to prove it, but the wisdom in this book genuinely comes from the angels and God and this book is based on reality, on a true life that has been lived and continues to be lived.

Anyone who reads this book will discover that they are not alone, that there is always someone there by their side, to help them no matter what difficulties they are in. They will discover that they are loved unconditionally.

This book will help readers recognise times in their past when angels have helped them, even if they didn’t realise it at the time. We have all been helped at times by angels, and recognising these events, even in hindsight, is a very powerful support when we face challenges in our life.

It will help them to understand how easy connection with the angels can be. It’s so simple, all they have to do is ask. That realisation alone is something wonderful.

Readers will find answers to many of the questions they have deep inside themselves, the questions that they hide, that they may be afraid to ask in case they are ridiculed. It will stir questions in their minds about what is happening in their lives and give them insights which will help them.

I can’t say everyone will find the answer to every question though because at times the angels won’t answer a question; it’s simply not the right time in that person’s life to know the answer.

Anyone who reads this book will be given hope and affirmation that there is a reason for life. It will open them up to the world of the angels and of God, they will realise that they are not just flesh and blood, that they have a soul, that there is a meaning to life. They will understand more about how precious this gift of life is.

If you do read this book with an open mind, it will make a big difference to you. Even If you say you don’t believe in angels, read it for curiosity, suspend your cynicism for a short time and have a look. What have you got to lose?”



When I wrote Angels in my Hair , I thought that if it helped one person I would be happy. I didn’t even consider then that it might be translated into even one other language so you can imagine my delight when I was given  Angels in my Hair in Language no 30!! Romanian!!  This book can now join the copies of Angels in my hair in Korean, Chinese, Japanese,  Russian … on my book shelves (you can see more languages here )

I feel enormous joy when a person tells me that knowing that they have a guardian angel has changed their life. I feel full of wonder and gratitude when someone tells me that hearing the message that I have been asked to spread has given them back hope.”
