Memories!, 14 July 2008
A joy to read - despite the unhappy time the main character had as a child. This booked for me evoked many happy memories of "old" Ireland,people in the community perhaps knowing too much about each other but at the same time caring very much for each other.The language,the expectations and the description of the various characters I am sure could be recognised in any village.
