about

The next moving volume of the autobiographical Ma series--all bestsellers in the UK and Ireland--about a young woman's coming of age in Dublin, told in an unforgettable voice.

     Sixteen-year-old Martha's luck is finally changing. Taken in by a kind young priest, Father Ralph Fitzgerald, and his wealthy mother, she gets a taste of "how the other half lives" and resolves to make a better life for herself once and for all. Soon she's off to school to become a secretary: her ticket to a respectable middle-class existence. But even as her fortune improves--she has a roof over her head, food in her belly, and the freedom to do as she pleases--the love and community she has sought since she was a child continue to elude her. Her friendship with Father Ralph, the first person to make her feel truly special, may hold the key to her happiness. However, as their friendship becomes something more, Martha discovers that love can heal--but it can also hurt, deeply. In Ma, Now I'm Goin Up in the World, Martha navigates 1960s Ireland with her trademark compassion, optimism, and fiery strength. But will these traits be enough to see her through the greatest challenge of her life thus far?
