The author speaks honestly of the conflicts she experienced as a child and the overzealous paternal control that dominated her young life. The reader follows the author's journey as it weaves between her experiences in both countries. Ultimately, The Modern Voice of an Irish Immigrant shows us that through a deep commitment to personal growth, one can indeed emerge whole and able to enjoy a full and complete life.

Among the highly interesting topics the book explores are the changing face of the Catholic Church in Ireland and the United States, the uniform wish of immigrants to recreate the best of the culture they left behind, what it is to be a conscientious parent, the reality of ill and aging parents, and finally, the joy of the discovery of a life that is worth the often challenging effort.
