Galway Bay by Mary Pat Kelly

I loved this book. Coming from an Irish heritage that included ancestors who left Ireland during the potato famine and ancestors who fled during the troubles, this book gave me a point of reference as to how life must have been for my grandparents and great grandparents. It also gave me insight as to my parents' outlook on life, which was handed down from their parents. I need to check and see if Mary Pat Kelly wrote any other books!

I loved this book. Although obviously fiction, it was a great story that could have happened, given the mores of the day.

I loved this book. We Follow Nadiya's journey from a young girl in Ukraine who follows her heart and slips out of her house to have her fortune told only to return and find her family dead, killed by the Germans. She loses her first love on the same night and ends up living in one of the camps until the war's end, when she chooses an abusive man over a better life because of her guilt over having been gone when her family was killed. We next see her as an elderly woman, still keeping her secret, but nevertheless acting as matriarch of her large ukranian family. I won't tell you more. Buy the book. You won't regret it!
