    Genre Biography and MemoirPublisher Gallery BooksPub Date March 5, 2019After reading the blurb, I figured this book was a no brainer for me The blurb suggests that Tom Phelan s memoir is in the tradition of Frank McCourt s memoir, Angela s Ashes Considering, I loved Ashes, what could go wrong The answer is plenty I already knew from the book s title that Phelan s tale would be much upbeat than McCourt s But give me a break Phelan makes it sound like his growing up po Genre Biography and MemoirPu [...]

    We Were Rich and We Didn t Know It is a beautiful memoir describing the joy and sorrow of living in the rural times Tom Phelan s writing is lively with avid descriptions of farm life I found it fascinating learning about the Tom s perspective of living in a rural community It s insane how things have changed over the years especially with looking back living without a telephone, internet, computers, etc It s a definite eye opener realizing how much our society is dependent on technology now We W [...]

    Thank you to NetGalley and Gallery Books for the free eARC in exchange for an honest reviewThe memoir covers Tom s life from birth to when he takes off for boarding school Similar events are organized into chapters and follow a fairly logical sequence Minus the lack of transition between chapters, this is a smooth and enjoyable read The first person point of view let me feel like I was actually sitting in the kitchen with the neighbors Phelan s style paints such avid descriptions of people an Th [...]

    Thanks to Gallery Books for the advance copy of this book A memoir of life as a boy in post World War II Ireland, the book deftly describes the joys and sorrows of rural life I found it to be beautifully written and poetic in its descriptions The people inhabiting this world were so engaging, I wanted to read about each of them, and indeed, wanted the book to continue This is not a dark or melancholy depiction of life s difficulties, but it is written with a sincerity that is meaningful Thanks t [...]

  5. Irenesays:

    A sometimes sorrowful, often humorous look at growing up in 1940 s Ireland, when the kitchen was truly the heart of a home and the location of everything from bathing to turkey plucking Tom Phelan shares with readers a look at his close knit family, dealing with bullies, and life on the farm It is an engaging heartfelt memoir that paints a brilliant picture of simpler times 4 out of 5 stars I received an advance copy for review

  6. MomIsReadingsays:

    I appreciate receiving an ARC of this book I always feel a little guilty giving a rating to a memoir Who am I to judge someone s recollection of a life However this was compared to Angela s Ashes which is a pretty high bar to put out there I considered this an average memoir Also think had he written this at a much younger age it may have been a little less of a rosy picture of poverty.

  7. Heathersays:

    I want to thank Gallery Books for a chance to read an ARC copy of WE WERE RICH AND WE DIDN T KNOW IT.Simply put I really enjoyed this.The writing was lively The chapters, pleasing lengths.A pleasant, pick up and go journey of Tom Phelan and eye opener to the way things were once done before technology eased our lives.However others saw the time and place he lived, I liked how Mr Phelan recalled his boyhood as though he were still that boy Describing how he felt and thought while hinting at w I w [...]
