A New York City couple, who gave up their urban existence to settle in the tiny village of Kilmihil on Ireland's west coast, here recount their adaption. "Entertaining and instructive," said PW , the work "captures a way of life foreign to most readers." Illustrated.
A most enjoyable read - One Irish national and one American make good on their dream of returning to Ireland and to a life that is simpler, centered and connected to the land. They admit to setbacks and share their successes all the while trying to be a part of a community being accepted for themselves. A recommended read for anyone enjoying Irish landscape reading, back-to-the-land narratives or just a wee bit of travel with writers who become friends before the book ends.
A wonderful little book. Very enjoyable to read about this American couple making a new life in Cork County, Ireland. The pitfalls of their new life as well as their delight in the serenity of the simplicity living in rural Ireland. The book starts a little slow but in no time you are thrilled with gbeit story. Can't wait to read more about their Irish life.
