Actress and writer Mary McEvoy has struggled with depression for many years, trying to reconcile her life in the public eye with private pain. Many things have helped Mary to come to terms with her depression: the rituals of farming life in Co. Westmeath, the excitement of the stage, the love of friends and family. Ultimately, Mary has found her way through, and it's the little things that have really helped: the beauty of the world around her, the quiet pleasures of sweeping the yard, or cooking a simple meal.
In Ordinary Beauty, Mary celebrates life's seemingly insignificant moments and invests them with fresh beauty and meaning, as well as a wry humour. Never has 'living in the moment' been so enjoyable, or so comforting.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wonderful and healing book ... beautifully written and full of compassion for us flawed human beings - Cathy Kelly

McEvoy is brilliant at taking small, ordinary incidents and turning it into a quietly striking or uncanny moment ... Her writing is beautiful and her ideas interesting. And there's a sense of humour that subtly shines through ... This is a book that is meant to be read more than once - Irish Independent
