Lilly's story is presented as a memoir that recounts the amazing journey of her life from childhood up to her final moments. It is a sweeping story that begins with "The Troubles" in Ireland and what drove Lilly to immigrate to America, a country she loves. The lovely Irish brogue of narrator Wanda McCaddon add texture to a fascinating story. This is an excellent book group selection which generated some interesting discussion.
