Publisher's Summary

Critic Reviews

"Wise, funny and touching, this is a portrait of friendship, customs and folklore of Ireland; but what stays with you is harder to catch, like smoke or running water. It is the taste of something we all once knew, ever-present if only you look for it. Completely enchanting." (Joanna Lumley)
"Wonderful, and beautifully read. This is the hidden Ireland." (Alice Taylor)
"A beautiful book in touch with the deepest, lasting bonds between woman and man." (Frank McGuinness)
"Poetic, but not showy, finely honed but easy and unforced, descriptive and evocative." ( Irish Independent)

Fantastic!

As I listened to this, all I wanted to do is visit the wonderful place. As it is, we are going in one month! This book is beautifully written and wonderfully read by the author. I loved every minute and hated to finish. I highly recommend it.
