And if that were not enough, you can also hear the words. The dialogue on every page lends itself to be read aloud. And part of the joy of this book is ?hearing? Ms. Carey as you read about each event and leg of her journey. We all remember the events of our past with varying degrees of honesty and clarity. Ms. Carey takes a critical look at the milestones of her life?through the eyes of someone who has made the journey home with awe and affection.
For everyone who loves words, stories and laughter?this is a must read!
2 seperate books. Life on Broadway and Life on the Emerald Isle.
I would love Ms. Carey expand on both in future books....
A great read!!
Alice's salvation resides in her mother, "mammie," whom she adored and who adored her. By the author's literary skill, mammie comes alive and endearing. One example is the episode where she and her mother attended the Broadway opening of "Peter Pan" starring Mary Martin, -a tale told with vivid detail. In her account of her ambivalent search for her roots in Ireland, I very much appreciated the account of her and her husband's finding and rehabilitating the Protestant mansion and rescuing the Catholic cottage from the cows near Bantry where they settled before tackling the manor house. That tale of renovation and acclimation would be a fitting sequel. Perhaps Alice Carey will treat us to that tale. A delicious read that ended all too soon.

There's something about restoring a house that makes people want to write a book. Perhaps it's the epic nature of their undertaking and the growth they experience in the process. Read morePublished on March 13, 2005 by Virginia Allain
