After Mrs. Pearse died in 1932 there were legal difficulties over her Will and over the royalties on Patrick Pearse's writings. These led to problems between the two surviving daughters, Margaret and Mary Brigid. When Mary Brigid published this book in 1934, Margaret claimed some of the proceeds as having legal title to Patrick Pearse's autobiographical material. Mary withdrew the book from circulation, thus making it rare.
