Item description for An Irishwoman's Tale by Patti Lacy...

Mary Freeman?s life has taken her a long way from a family that didn?t want her, and a long way from her Irish home. A crisis propels her back to the rocky cliffs of County Clare, Ireland.

Publishers Description

Far away from her Irish home, Mary Freeman begins to adapt to life in Midwest America, but family turmoil and her own haunting memories threaten to ruin her future. It takes a crisis in her daughter's life -- and the encouragement of Sally, a plucky Southern transplant -- to propel Mary back to the rocky cliffs of her home in County Clare, Ireland.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Irishwoman's Tale?

An Irishwoman's Tale  Jan 14, 2010
I enjoyed this book, although I got a little lost in the Catholic part of Ireland. The book ended too soon for me, as I had some more areas I would have preferred had been explored. Maybe, "An Irishwoman's Tale Two"?
An Irish Woman's Tale  Nov 5, 2009
An Irishwoman's Tale is an emotional all night read. Mary was born in Ireland, and sent to live with family in the United States. She always felt unloved and unwanted. She keeps these feelings locked inside, causing inner turmoil.

Beautifully written, Mary comes to terms with her inner struggles, feelings of abandonment, feeling unloved and unwanted, and just different than everyone else. Surprises await with each page as you will learn more and more about Mary's past, and how she copes in the present.

A fantastic read.
Beautiful, Well Written Story  Oct 6, 2009
I will admit it took me a while to read this book. It was a little hard to take in big doses. But as I really got into the story, and was able to look past the ugliness that Mary had to face in her life, it drew me in. I found that I also wanted to find the answers she searched for.

This book is wonderfully written with great detail and deep characters. Patti Lacy is a terrific writer and I look forward to reading more of her works.
Cheaper than a ticket to Ireland but nearly as priceless  Jul 15, 2009
Don't wait another minute to travel to Ireland with this great read. I couldn't wait to see how the passionate Irishwoman dealt with two nasty families. A redemptive version of Angela's Ashes. Order one for your mother while you're at it!
An Irishwoman's Tale  Jun 11, 2009
An Irishwoman's Tale is about a woman (married with two kids) who had a very difficult childhood full of unanswered questions. As she recounts her story to her new friend, Sally, Mary finds healing and the answers she has so desperately been needing.

Patti is a wonderful storyteller and I loved how she gave us glimpses back and forth into Mary's past and present. There are so many people in this world who grew up with pain and dysfunction who never get closure on their past. Mary is one of those people, but she finds it when she finally lets herself be vulnerable in trusting a new friend with her story.

If I were to change anything I would have not revealed as much of Mary's childhood in the beginning of the book (specifically, how her father treated her). It seemed obvious to me why she was sent away and if that information had been saved until the end it might have had an even greater impact to the story.

Even so, it was a good story and Patti did a wonderful job telling it.
