Format: Paperback
Marty Kay has hit on a niche market with "Irish Eyes".
The link between Ireland and the U.S. as seen through the eyes of the main character helps to make the book unique.
The full gamut of emotions is well explored and the Irish Catholic immigrant's story fully covered.
A very enjoyable read, that brought home the rags to riches story.

Format: Paperback
"When Irish eyes are smiling..." , and sure won't they steal your heart
away? That's the effect this book, and its protagonist, will have on
you.
Michael Maguire arrived in the U.S. from his native land, Ireland, as a young lad. He settles in Philadelphia, where he finds his new homeland
can be rough, but works hard to establish himself. Michael has no
green card; he is an illegal from across the Atlantic.
His story begins in the harsh winter of Philadelphia; he has lost his
family and home, and most of his savings, in his pending divorce.
It is a cold, blistery night as he fends his way to Saint William's
church, his sanctuary. Little does he know that the cold would be
the least of his worries.
His first marriage in the U.S. ends in failure, yet produced a daughter who is his pride and life. Michael encounters a few undesirables from the seedier side of life that would do him harm. Still, he remains hopeful. He maintains his Catholic upbringing, thinking daily of his dear father,
who, by his words and life, sustains Michael's character and goals.
There are a couple sexual scenes, but only as an integral and minor
part of the story. The "feast" is served to you as every adventurous
and productible part of Michael's life unfolds; as he maintains being
a father to his daughter; as he finds new love; as the culmination of
his hard work comes to fruition in 1986 by the Immigration Act.
When you realize the story is coming to its end, you can only hope
author Marty Kay has another Michael Maguire book in the making.

By John on February 22, 2008
Format: Paperback
A very well written and intriguing work that shows a keen eye for detail and taps into a reservoir of emotions. The characters are real, the plot solid and the moral strong.

The author has obviously drawn on experiences from both sides of the Atlantic and presented them in an enjoyable and memorable way.

I hope there is a sequel to this work.
