Kate Cullen's lively manuscript account makes riveting reading about the close-knit life of Protestant Ireland, a society absorbed in its own triumphs and misfortunes, in its religion and fashions, and yet conscious that at the moment history was being made. During the 1840's she lived in Dublin, staying for periods with married sisters in Sligo, Donegal and Leitrim. She witnessed the Famine, though she was cushioned from it. She married the bank manager in Carrick-on-Shannon, moving as a widow to Sligo to earn her living as manageress of the Country Club. Kate remembered her experiences so vividly that around the turn of the century, her daughter, Susan L. Mitchell, then a budding writer, persuaded her to dictate them. The memoir has an additional importance in the background that it reveals to one of the leading figures of the Irish literary revival. Susan L. Mitchell, eager to learn of her own origins, was later distinguished as a poet and friend of AE, Yeats and Seamus O'Sullivan.

Malaunitly
This book provides an account of 19th century Irish society from the perspective of a family implanted into the native culture. The presentation of Kate Cullen's personal point of view offers significant insight into one side of 19th century Irish history.

The book does not provide much contextual information about Ireland beyond Ms. Cullen's "world," which seems significant in and of itself.
