Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Alice Taylor's classic account of growing up in the Irish countryside and the biggest selling book ever published in Ireland.

If ever a voice has captured the colours, the rhythms, the rich, bittersweet emotions of a time gone by, it is Alice Taylor's. Her tales of childhood in rural Ireland hark back to a timeless past, to a world now lost, but ever and fondly remembered. The colourful characters and joyous moments she offers have made To School through the Fields an Irish phenomenon, and have made Alice herself the most beloved author in all of the Emerald Isle. A must-have for fans of Alice Taylor.

Critic Reviews

"A delightful evocation of Irishness and of the author’s deep-rooted love of 'the very fields of home'…with its rituals and local characters." ( Publisher's Weekly)

Lovely Story

The story created beautiful images of Ireland and also the hardships of the time. I have read the other books related to this story and they are all good. I love the Irish accent of the story teller.
