Amazon.com reviews:

"ME AND MINE tells the story of an Irish immigrant family who left rural Ireland in the 1950s to find work and a better way of life in England. Battling poverty, death, illness and everyday life this is a story of survival, triumph and laughter in the face of adversity from a truly colourful cast of characters told with wit and warmth."

"A light-hearted look into the Irish. I can relate very strongly with the sayings and language of this story.. Being married to an Irishman I found myself laughing at times with the vocabulary."

"Five stars!! This is a wonderful story about an Irish family that immigrated to London, told from the viewpoint of a young girl. The story makes you laugh and cry and laugh again. You feel so connected to the characters and can't wait to see what happens next! Even those who are not of Irish descent will enjoy the book immensely. I highly recommend it."
