Review by Mary Firmin, Author of Deadly Pleasurres

The Extraordinary Dreams
of an
Ireland Traveler
By
Rosemary “Mamie” Adkins


This wonderful book is not a Travel Book, it is an homage to the beauty of Ireland and the charm of the Irish people. I absolutely love the way Ms. Adkins divides up the story, selecting certain cities on which to focus her perspective. As a young girl I was sent to Ireland for two years and loved every minute of it, just as Rosemary and her husband apparently did. The old thatched cottages which she described actually did exist and the horse-drawn carriages and the old donkey and carts were actually in use. The author’s colorful descriptions of the gardens are truly inspiring, and her knowledge of the History of Ireland impeccable. The Irish are full of folk stories and eventhese tall tales were captured beautifully and with humor.  I just can’t say enough good things about the delightful story that Ms. Adkins has woven around each and every one of the exciting locations she visited. If you like a pleasant, enjoyable read where you will learn all about this great country,then you will love this book.  Not only do you get the story, the author sets out a list of do’s and don’ts in order that you might enjoy your stay more fully. She has also arranged, with all her new friends in Ireland, for some pretty solid discounts should you decide to travel there. This book is a must read if you are even thinking about going to Ireland and enjoying the bestvacation of your life.
