Enda celebrates life and hope with the launch of her novel
Finn's Folly, Enda Maher's first novel, got off to a flying start at its recent launch night at the Talbot Hotel.
The retired GP was joined by crowds of family members, friends, colleagues and former patients for the special event which she described as 'a great success'. Launched by Cllr George Lawlor, the novel was written by the Wexford resident following her cancer diagnosis several years ago.
Speaking at the launch she said: 'I spent many sleepless nights creating the characters in Finn's Folly. This gave me great comfort and helped me enormously in my recovery. These characters became my fictional friends and I spent endless hours planning their lives, their adventures and destinies. Launching Finn's Folly marks the end of a long and happy process. It is my testimony to recovery, to life and hope.'
Enda dedicated her book to her husband Pierce, her children, grandchildren and to her special friends without whom she said, she'd have had a much harder struggle to recover from her recent serious illness.
Now fully recovered, Enda is looking forward to receiving feedback on his first literary venture.
