Book review

This book provides an evocative look into the awakening consciousness of childhood given the dreadful poverty and deprivation that persisted throughout the war years in Ireland. Michael Waters is moved back to Ireland by his mother, rather than being 'evacuated' in the Second World War. From his first conscious awakenings, he slowly and tenderly recounts the great Irish Diaspora and the impact of the war that drives so many to extreme poverty. The Irish education and religious systems are invoked early on and persist in framing the consciousness of Michael and his friend Little Paddy. Together, they grow up with an optimistic view of life, despite a background of squalor and the imponderable impact of the Christian Brothers. The story is a love affair with childhood, persisting in Michael and Little Paddy's positive outlook on life. However, a definitive line is drawn under this when Michael is forced to leave on his fourteenth birthday... Gorry Rua Morning celebrates the fascination of childhood and reflects the love, care and support of a mother left to fend for herself, who never allows her children to feel less than totally loved. Author John C Ryan responds to the work of James Joyce's A Portrait, and some say this book provides an antidote to Angela's Ashes. Written as a fictional novel, yet almost entirely autobiographical, Gorry Rua Morning is a moving read that will touch the hearts and souls of many.
