I am enjoying the history of the Garrity Clan & the Carne Links. I feel like each chapter is its own tale but the entire story is disjointed.

The last 40 pages or so really captured my interest. When Garrity got to the 'real' reason he was in Ireland for a sabbatical it all came into focus for me. Man, what a moving tale. Plus he had a few great quotes in the end that really made me think.
I have never had any desire to go to Ireland--until now and you can bet I will be bringing my clubs!
