Thomas Rice does much more than describe the harsh and magical world of his childhood. He opens the door wide and invites us in; he gives us the best seat in the house, offers us a pint, and then asks us to dance. I can almost hear the music!

Thomas Rice takes us back with him to his ancestral home — and to the excitements, dreads and legends of childhood in a rural village. At the end of each story, after I settled down from the chills and tears, the author bid me good night with a wink and a nod.
