“This is a very enjoyable read – one of sharp contrasts. In fact I found myself dreading the chapters dealing with the orphanage. Thankfully the author used descriptive but not excessively graphic scenes to portray the horrors of those institutions. And she balanced it with delightful humor in the chapters about Jamie’s adult life. The characters are well drawn; the best of which is Rose McFadden. I laughed out loud at some of her dialogs and learned a great new word…”And it’s a terrible thing when a body is incapissitated in such a way.” That one line was worth the whole book!” By Meg
“Though he was resigned to a life of miserable loneliness, some hope still remained for Jamie McCloone. “The Misremembered Man” is the story of two opposites. One is the rugged Jamie, with his cruel history of orphanhood and a sad life; the other is Lydia, a cleanliness next to godliness type, who lives under an oppressive mother. They meet through the newspaper and an intriguing romance begins to bud, in this touching story of companionship set in rural Ireland’s darker times. A top pick for readers seeking a well-written period piece.” By Midwest Book Review
