It is a very easy read but very hard to put down until you have finished reading it.It is the story of a survivor, he survived early illness, the blitz in Manchester and on remigration to Galway he had to survive the loss of his father and then the loss of his childhood in the Industrial School system. It is a lovely piece of social history covering as it does the Manchester Blitz (in part), life on the west coast of Ireland during the Second World War followed by his time in the Industrial School system under the care of the Irish Christian Brothers then work on a farm followed by migration to Manchester once again and his life thereafter. I for one was fascinated by life in the Industrial School as I had very little idea of what they were and how they operated.The wonder is that he survived to be an ordinary well balanced individual despite the early privations.
