Michaella’s spiritual book she held during hearing - ‘Secrets About Life Every Woman Should Know’
AS a solemn faced Michaella McCollum Connolly arrived at court, she was preparing for the worst by carrying a book about spirituality and wearing a religious bracelet.
When the young woman was initially arrested, she made glamorous appearances in court with her hair styled in a fashionable top knot and a leather jacket.
Yesterday, with a more demure appearance in a khaki green
t-shirt and jeans, the young woman accessorised her look with the spiritual book Secrets About Life Every Woman Should Know and a religious bracelet alongside her handcuffs.
Written by American expert Dr Barbara De Angelis, the book is described as focusing on giving women confidence, clarity and peace, and the emotions to deal with life's tribulations.
Adorning her wrist alongside her restricting handcuff, was the increasingly popular wooden saints’ bracelet.
One story surrounding the meaning of the religious bracelet is that the images will fall off over time, and the remaining saint is the one that you should pray to.
