Country DaysBook - 1996
Reflections on rural life in Ireland include showing the countryside to a new American friend, renovating a beloved home, and helping reluctant relatives choose clothes for a family wedding
Alice Taylor's books have made her almost as beloved among Irish-Americans as St. Patrick himself. With nearly a million copies of her books in print internationally, she continues to be the most popular writer in Ireland today.
Country Days, her newest volume of glorious reminiscences of life in Eire, is now finally available in paperback. Like its predecessors -- including the classic To School Through the Fields -- it is filled with character and characters, delicious sensory memories, and stories remembered with whimsy and warmth. It may well be Taylor's best book yet.
"Sweet-natured and filled with amusement at life's twists and turns, Taylor (To School Through the Fields) should please fans and win herself new admirers with this collection of autobiographical anecdotes interspersed with homely poems celebrating everyday life." - Publishers Weekly
