Astute and stoical Molly is uprooted from civilized city life to live in a thatched house on the edge of a bog, next to a railway line. The health of her cantankerous, old mother-in-law is failing, so the family have had to up sticks and go to live with her.
Slowly, over the following months, warm and generous-hearted neighbours help the family accumulate pony, trap, hens, etc., to make things easier on the new,young family in their midst.
The vivid and evocative prose conjures up a simplistic way of living that is now gone forever but, thankfully, is lovingly and accurately recorded here by the author. Through it all, the beautiful Irish brogue can be heard singing off the pages, and the warmth and generosity of these lovely people stayed with me long after I finished this book. I'm glad to have had the privilege of knowing them a little, for a short time.

There is some use of language that some might find offensive, but I read it as the speech pattern typical of a bygone era.
