    One thought on “The Women”

    1. This is a beautiful hardcover book illustrated with black and white photographs by Emma Byrne and it is a joy to behold as well as read. When I purchased the book last week, I originally thought it was short stories. I was mistaken, it is actually a memoir of 15 women that touched Alice Taylor’s life. Some are relatives such as her mother, others are neighbours and others visitors to her house. However each story is an exploration of what it was like to be a woman in the rural West of Ireland [...]

    2. In this inspirational memoir Alice Taylor celebrates the unsung heroines of her life - her mother, her grandmother, her amazing seamstress aunt Kate, the handy woman, the district nurse and many more. It is a beautiful portrayal of some remarkable women who could slip into the annals of history without ever having their stories told. How glad am I that she wrote this and that our book club read it - my life is richer for reading it. Amazing.
