"In Sight of Yellow Mountain - a cosy intimate read" - by Aisling Klink
I thoroughly enjoyed In Sight of Yellow Mountain and was lulled into its world of rich nature, wild weather and generous neighbours. It is a book to curl-up with in front of a crackling fire and chuckle over the amusing anecdotes of a well-known urbane actor who takes on the challenge of embracing country-life with his brave and much-loved actress wife. His story-telling weaves evocatively between the harsh realities of live-stock rearing, the genteel pass-time of game-shooting, the luxury of home-grown food and the tenderness of a father raising his sons with the sensitivity of a broken-heart. What I also treasure are the fascinating insights into the old mystical beliefs and ancient Celtic pagan ceremonies which amazingly are still celebrated today. While the descriptions of life in deepest County Wicklow are transporting and the sense of comedy in always within reach, there is a touching sense of awe and awakening ... full review

"A Window into Explaining the Past" - by Jane Austen (Bedfordshire, UK)
As a social historical enthusiast, I found this book really interesting. It make many links and illuminated certain gaps in my knowledge. I am pleased to say these links connect to art, social customs, religion etc, it has helped to explain ideas taken for granted or just glossed over.

Likewise it explodes thoughts and conceptions about childhood/adulthood, how children were viewed, their responsibilities and family dependency on their earnings. Modern childhood is now imploding and returning to early expectations, but not by adults choosing, but by children themselves.

Pleased with the purchase.

"Inspirational story of people determined to make a difference" - by Dr. C. W. Mcglynn (UK)
This wonderfully written book charts the story of a group of ordinary people with a simple wish to have their Catholic and Protestant children educated together rather than in separate schools. Beginning in the 1970s this honest account records how a group of parents took on the establishment, against the backdrop of the Troubles and against considerable clerical and political opposition. Not satisfied with merely changing legislation to allow schools to become integrated, the All Children Together movement started their own school Lagan College in 1981. The legacy of this movement is a current total of 62 schools and more than 20,000 students in integrated schools in every part of Northern Ireland. Bardon's book documents the brave journey of the pioneers of integrated education. He does not flinch from the human issues that complicated the journey and the account is all the richer and more honest for this. His attention ... full review

"The best days of our lives" - by M. A. Moore (UK)
This is a fascinating book. I found it was "un-put-down-able." As a child in the 1950s so many memories came back to me as I read this book. I learned quite a number of facts that I was unware of too.
