    This is a fascinating history of mid 20th century Ireland, in terms of the personal life of a boy in a small village I loved the detailed descriptions of the thatching of the house, his first visit to the cinema, the difficulties of running a radio on batteries, the company around the literal fireside, and especially the music.The family life sounds idyllic, and they didn t seem to want for what they didn t have Paddy gets his first accordion at the age of 12, and from then on, it s the music for him He describes how it makes him feel, so taken up that at one point he almost dumps a load of hay meant for the barn into the fireplace in the house His understanding family encourages his interest and this is a blessed relief from other tales of abuse and neglect.What a wonderful story, full of ghost tales and daily life I just wish this would come with a soundtrack CD The tune names are delightful.

    Loved this book I finished it and I know I will be rereading stories from this book.Perfect book to give as gifts I love this book and I am not that far into it.I plan on reading a few stories at a time.Each story unique.I am already recommending this book.An audio would be great after hearing the author read a few stories.

    Set a good brogue in your head and read a chapter or two every day with your cuppa tea A thoroughly enjoyable read that s part history growing up in rural Ireland mid 20th century, part Irish music appreciation the patience, persistence and passion Paddy applied, and part storytelling The only thing that would make it better would be an audio version
