Review:

For anyone in need of a quick vacation, Alice Taylor's memoir...will do as well as an afternoon spent sitting in field high enough to blot out the skyscrapers. Taylor's telling makes the world of her village universal, and sets her firmly in that mysteriously potent Irish storytelling tradition." --Los Angeles Times

"Charming...[Taylor] brings to life the simple delights of growing up on a farm in a large family... A delighful evocation of Irishness and of the author's deep-seated love of 'the very fields of home'" --Publishers Weekly

"One of th most richly evocative and moving portraits of childhood [ever] written..gentle and beckoning..a journey every reader will treasure and will want to read over and over again." --Boston Herald
