Read a review for My Patchwork Life by Catholine Butler (Celtic Connections Online)




Patricia O’Connor wrote this book to encourage women and people of all ages to aim for new goals in their personal lives and their chosen careers.

Women need to remember the sort of power they have. If we are talented in Business, Art, Music or Design we are generally not applauded for our talents as we should be and are sometimes made fun of instead. This book is designed to encourage readers to have confidence and believe in themselves.

There is hardly any type of business that has not benefitted from Patricia’s instruction. Whenever and wherever she has given an open presentation she has always been asked back to give additional courses.
