Honest, funny, heartfelt ... I loved it' Cathy Kelly Clear-eyed, touching, forthright and funny, In My Mother’s Shoes  is Alison Walsh’s delightful  account of three generations of mothers – her Nana, leading light of the Irish Countrywomen’s Association, indomitable in all things except deferring to her husband; her mother, whose glamorous career as a 1960s air hostess was cut cruelly short by the simple act of getting married; and Alison herself, a modern woman whose life would not be thwarted by such lack of choice.  Or would it?  'Cheerful, intelligent, funny and shockingly sensible ... Buy it. Read it. Pass it on.' Judith O'Reilly, author of Wife in the North   'Honest and immensely readable ... many mothers will find themselves nodding along in recognition. I will be passing it on and - more tellingly - looking for it back' Sunday Business Post 'Yay for Alison Walsh! ... An adroit, and honest, account of having babies (in the UK and Ireland), of bringing up babies (ditto), of being a Celtic Tiger mum, working all the hours God sends, to being a-stay-at-home mum, plus all the messy compromises in between' Sunday Independent
