The story of an Irish American's journey back to Ireland.
This was an easy-to-read book about a typical American male's journey into family history. A man who didn't think to ask his parents about their Irish childhoods, but eventually became interested in his Irish heritage in midlife. He is first-generation Irish so his trip to Ireland results in meeting some relatives or people that knew his parents. For me, a non-Irish American, it was interesting to read what it is like to grow up Irish Catholic in America and to travel through Ireland. The author covers a lot of issues like the potato famine and the English treatment of the Irish in a broad but conversational way. The author's Catholic faith isn't changed n a significant way but he becomes more spiritual as a result of traveling to Ireland.
