Ramblings in Ireland Review

Ramblings In Ireland
Kerry Dwyer
Publishing Date: August 15, 2012
ISBN: 978-1478392767


Book Description:


This is not a book about rambling in Ireland. It tells the tale of one particular walking trip and the memories and musings it inspired. Exploring the West of Ireland is a time for meditation, spiritual reflection and strengthening the bonds of life. More practically the ability to read a map might have proved helpful. The tourist office in Ireland has all their paths clearly marked. You can’t go wrong if you follow that little yellow man. Or can you? As British ex-patriate Kerry Dwyer leads Bertrand, her trusting French husband, astray once more, they reminisce and reflect upon accents and accidents, family and friends, love and what it means to be alive. Bertrand doesn’t mind getting lost - he loves Kerry all the more for going off the beaten track. This is a book about ramblings in Ireland. Walk with Kerry and Bertrand and follow where your thoughts lead you


My Thoughts:


                ‘Ramblings in Ireland’ with novel about a trip the author took Ireland with her husband. Her mother was from Ireland and she wanted to take holiday for a long time to explore Ireland. The novel takes you through their many experiences in Ireland from flying there, to driving on the narrow streets, to staying at different bed-and-breakfasts and getting lost on their walks.

It was a great peek into the lush land of Ireland and since my father's side of the family is from Ireland and one day I would love to go there, I thought this was a great book. It was entertaining and insightful. I like how it showed how different it can be when you visit other countries. It showed how simple word can change something so greatly. This book really made me want to visit Ireland even more than I already wanted to and it definitely made me want to do some of these walks. I also enjoyed that there was quite a bit of humor in the story.

I really enjoyed this book. It was like I was right there in Ireland with Kerry and at the very hard thing to accomplish when you're writing a book. It is a very good book and I would highly recommend it.
