Maktub: It Is Written by Rosemary Louise Gallagher
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Maktub: It Is Written is the sequel to I Listened To My Heart, the story of Rose O’Connell. Rose set out to follow her heart and find her soulmate, she talks to her Angels, watches the universe for their advice and reads the Tarot. She is a strong believer in psychic mediums and has many friends who follow spirituality.
In the first book Rose went to London, found and lost her twin-soulmate, wrote a song about it, wrote her book and made a good life for herself, finally finding another soul to love.
In this book, Rose begins with her interview on the Ellen DeGeneres TV show, then we go back in time for her to share with us, what’s gone on in her life since the end of book one. Psychic Leanne Rees had predicted that at the age of 50 Rose would write a book and have to make a choice between her twin-soulmate and a soulmate. Rose knows who these two men are and has a tough time making her choice. In the end one makes it for her and she sets out with the other to a new life in Boston with its own set of challenges and successes.
These books are fun and uplifting written in a chatty style. If you enjoy books about Angels, fate and the universe mixed with a good dose of women’s fiction, then this series might be for you.

About the author
I was born in Melbourne, Australia and aside from my many wonderful travels, I spent most of my life there, until moving to London in 2000. I was at a turning point and felt like I needed a change of lifestyle. I took advantage of my Irish passport and bravely packed up my happy life down under to see what the other side of the world was offering. That was nearly 14 years ago and I haven’t looked back!
For most of my professional career I have work as a Receptionist which was a role I enjoyed immensely, although I’ve now left the corporate world to concentrate on my creative and spiritual endeavours. Another decision I haven’t regretted. I’ve always held a strong interest in the metaphysical, especially the tarot cards and the angelic realm. After settling into my new life in London I began formal tarot studies at the Psychic College of London. I have been reading the tarot professionally ever since.
My creative development started late in my life – but better late than never. I now enjoy spending my days at home writing and doing readings. In addition, I also started writing song lyrics. I’ve written over 40 songs so far and I’ve had many of them recorded to music. I’d be happy to have you listen to them at my songs page. I am very excited that a few of my songs have already received high acknowledgement in various song writing competitions world-wide and also a few of them are under consideration for selection by top country music artist. I am hoping one day to write a #1 hit and maybe even win a Grammy! Oh yes, I’m a dreamer all right… but a girl has got to have dreams. I mean, if you don’t….how can they come true!
