This unique work, established on Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet was debuted and warmly received at an International Conference on Gibran held in Beirut in April 2006.... Given the state that the world is in today, the author is of the strong opinion that a woman's word would be more effective in bringing about a qualitative change, and even more warmly received by peoples of the world, and of his native Ireland, than say a man's, especially, if she were perceived by them to be in every way exceedingly beautiful. The work Myriam of Lebanon has been his answer.... It presents a philosopher-poetess called Myriam from the Phoenician port city of Byblos of the land of Lebanon who visits the isle of Eire and while there shares of her profound wisdom.... This work is a bright beacon of hope and strength for our times and beyond; a beautiful and endearing work born of the green fields of Eire and the snow-capped mountains of Lebanon.
