‘Ramblings in Ireland’ is a novel about the author’s trip to Ireland with her husband. Her mother was from Ireland and she wanted to take holiday for a long time to explore the country. The novel takes you through their many experiences in Ireland from flying there, to driving on the narrow streets, to staying at different bed-and-breakfasts and getting lost on their walks.
It is a great peek into the lush land of Ireland and since my father’s side of the family is from Ireland and one day I would love to go there, I think this is a great read. It is entertaining and insightful. I like how it showed how different it can be when you visit other countries. It showed how a simple word can change something so greatly. This book really made me want to visit Ireland even more than I already wanted to. It definitely made me want to do some of these walks. I also enjoyed that there was quite a bit of humor in the story.
I really enjoyed this book. It was like I was right there in Ireland with Kerry and that is a very hard thing to accomplish when you’re writing a book. It is a very good book and I highly recommend it.
