Mary O'Hara has received limited attention as a writer of children's books, but this volume examines her work as a serious writer of adult fiction. In addition to examining her most ambitious novel, "The Son of Adam Wyngate", the study also examines her writer's journals and personal diaries, and also looks at her diverse careers in other fields - Hollywood scriptwriting, dairy-farming in Wyoming, and writing/composing/orchestrating a musical play - and at her personal life - marriages and moves from East to West to East and the Rocky Mountain Divide; and at her spiritual life, from Episcopalian origins through Christian Science to theosophical cults of California in the 20s and 30s, to her final conversion to the Roman Catholic Church.
