Loved the honesty & innocence of this book which captured the days of a child growing up in the Irish countryside. It drew you into the story & would recommended it to anyone.

I come from an Irish father and English mom although my Dad came from the east of Ireland but reading this it was Ireland of old. A fantastic read if anyone is in my age group (54) and went to Ireland every year as a child (at least two weeks in the summer) Loved every minute of the book and have now passed it on to my brother who is older (but not wiser) and am yet awaiting his comeback but I know it will be similar to mine. If of Irish origin a must read

Excellent, this book tells a story so very true. People from the west of Ireland will identify with the people and places and understand the difficult circumstances at that time. Things are so differnet now. Written in a simple and understanding manner.
