Kerri ní Dochartaigh grew up in Derry, in Northern Ireland, the daughter of a Catholic mother and a Protestant father, during the violence of the Troubles. Her Irish accent, with its working-class roots, lends a clear sense of place. Ní Dochartaigh's voice is meditative, even mystical, and full of rawness, pain, and hard-won wisdom. She learns to find peace from the trauma and loss she has carried into adulthood in the form of alcoholism and suicidal thoughts. There is solace in the natural world and in the magical thin places where heaven and earth are closer than usual. Ní Dochartaigh swims in cold water, is mesmerized by butterflies and birds, and is saved from an assault by a screeching fox. Ní Dochartaigh's authentic performance contributes to the power of this healing memoir. A.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2022]
