A Book About a Place, & Its People...



I'm currently reading Forgetting Ireland, a local history book written by a woman who grew up in the area written about (Graceville, Minnesota...) She not only grew up there, but is part of the story, in a way.

It makes fascinating reading because many of the types of people in her story, how they related to one another, and the petty squabbles between villages all seem very, very familiar...!
