Book Review: The Walking People – Mary Beth Keane

⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

When I got the opportunity to read The Walking People, I was really excited as loved Mary Beth Keane’s Ask Again, Yes. As with that novel, there are layers of family history in The Walking People, as we follow the central characters from their roots in Ireland to start a new life in America.

The story weaves from past to present, and kept me interested all the way. The sense of place is extremely strong, with a vivid picture of Ireland as well as the draw of the big cities of America – the book builds an emotional connection to both places, and to me they were the heart of the book, even more so than the characters that we see them through. I really recommend this book to anyone who loves family sagas.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read and review this
