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.

An interesting story about a young couple who, in the 1980s, left their jobs and lives in New York City to go live on a farm in western Ireland.

Reading this book made me thankful for the comforts of modern life and technology!

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.
