Ma, I've Reached for the Moon an I'm Hittin the Stars




The sixth volume of memoirs by the bestselling author of Ma, He Sold Me for a Few Cigarettes

After a failed suicide attempt and recovery in the mad house, Martha is heading for France to be reunited with the one true love of her life.

Father Ralph Fitzgerald rescued her from the streets when she was sixteen and was the first person to show Martha true love and affection. But their relationship threatened his vocation and he eventually fled to Africa to take up missionary work.

Martha never got over losing him and now, after nearly twenty years, he has made contact again. She sets off on a mission to find him and uncover his motives for getting in touch. Does he still love her? Has he left the priesthood? Is he now free to marry her? She needs to know what the future is going to hold.
