Synopsis: "Who was my mother?" asks prolific author Jack O'Rourke.
In his charming, heartfelt, and moving tribute to his late mother, Mr. O'Rourke describes for readers just what made her such a powerful force in his life, and in the lives of so many others. Its title, My Only Mother, acknowledges what his father told him on the day of her passing: "You can never get another mother."
Anne Boyle O'Rourke's story begins in nineteenth-century New York City, in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn. As one of seven children, she eventually goes to work as a telephone operator and meets Jack O'Rourke. Jack and Anne soon marry and, four years later, are blessed with their only child.
The author blissfully moves through memory after memory, keeping things active and entertaining for his readers. His remembrances include pre-war New York City and convivial Sunday family dinners; brisk shopping trips on Fulton Street; taking in a very special cat named Inky (although his mother was not totally in favor of this); a two-decade residence in Forest Hills, at the time the renowned tennis capital of the world; and plenty of "laughter, drinking, and general good times."
"My mother was a family secret," writes Mr. O'Rourke lovingly, "but after reading these pages, she is hopefully a secret no longer."
An eloquent tribute to a wonderful woman.

About the Author: Jack O'Rourke was born in New York City and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in World War II, achieving the rank of captain. After earning a B.S. from Fordham University, he followed in his father's footsteps at AT&T, working in the marketing department. Mr. O'Rourke previously published books include A Giant in My Life, A Masterpiece Named Fran, and Once a Marine. He resides in California.
