She has made her life out of the stones that she told her children, stories of her early years in Ireland, her migration to America when she was sixteen, her life in Chicago when she struggled to become American, and her marriage during World War II to Harry White, the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, a graduate of Harvard, and an officer in the United States Army. Sara's memories, as recaptured in this unusual book by her son, Richard White, are neither history nor memoir but something larger and brighter than both. White brilliantly succeeds, in collaboration with his mother, in forcing history as it is traditionally written back into conversation with personal recollections. Together, they paint a more balanced picture of Sara Walsh's past though Remembering Ahanagran is much more than a fascinating tale of one woman and her family it is a passionate story that expresses the dignity and excitement of ordinary lives.Read Less
