Review: Ramblings in Ireland by Kerry Dwyer

SUMMARY (Amazon)

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.

I really loved this non-fiction account of a husband and wife and their interesting and powerful adventure. Kerry Dwyer is a master at describing the majestic nature of Ireland.

I am of Irish heritage and Ireland has always been on the top of my want list to visit, and now that I've read this book, I really cannot wait to go see this beautiful land.

I normally don't like non fiction or travel memoirs that much, but this was a very eay read from beginning to end. It wasn't dull or slow. It moves you easily from conversation to conversation.

Liking this story as much as I did was surprising but I'm glad I gave it a chance. It was beautifully written and Kerry is so wonderful at her descriptions. She is a very talented writer and I look forward to more of her work!



Loved it! Go read it right now!
