One of those books that horrifies and facinates at the same time. To think that "modern" times can still have such challenges as the characters in this book were faced with is hard to think about. However, McCort's written voice (heck, you can almost hear the broge while reading it) and the written tone is light in many places, and the missunderstandings and misshaps caused by such utter "ignorance" of the time and place are often hysterical.
