After an absence of 30 years, Kathleen returns to Ireland to research the story and begins a journey that leads her not only into the historical past, but into a reconsideration of the family she fled years ago. While in Ireland, she meets a lover of her own who presents her with a choice that promises to alter the course of her life. As she moves toward her decision, she calls on the strengths of her identity as a woman, an Irish woman, and a woman who is no longer young. Meanwhile, she brings the story of the long-ago lovers to a denouement as tender as it is tragic.
My Dream of You explores the extremes of passion, the depths of loneliness, and the resilience of the human heart.

This book was so gorgeous--great use of language, compelling plot, vivid characters---I couldn't get anything done 'til it was over!
One of the most affecting books I've read. I've never been that fascinated by things Irish (including my ancestors), but after reading this, I felt I had to go see Ireland for myself.

Beautiful and heartbreaking
If you like beautiful writing and complex female characters, this book is for you. In this novel, the author draws on her own unhappy past to create a unique heroine that was all too heartbreakingly real. One of the few books I have ever read that deal with love and the older woman in a realistic and compassionate way. Wonderfully written and wonderfully narrated.
