Audie Award, Narration by Author, 2016. Raised by unconventional Irish Catholics who knew "how to drink, how to dance, how to talk, and how to stir up the devil", Kate Mulgrew grew up with poetry and drama in her bones. But in her mother, a would-be artist burdened by the endless arrival of new babies, young Kate saw the consequences of a dream deferred.

This book is at points heart wrenching but beautiful in its emotion. We are privileged that the author allows us into such a personal aspect of her life I feel privileged that she shared such sorrow and joy and to let you into her memories. I hope there is a follow up because I was left wanting much much more
