The story of two young girls who grew up in the repressive atmosphere of a small village in the west of Ireland in the years following World War II and set out to conquer the bright lights of Dublin.

"I chose this book because it was banned in Ireland when published in 1960.  It is a classic story of a young woman who leaves a rural area for the bright lights of the big city.  When reading Country Girls, I will try to imagine why it was so controversial in Ireland." -- Kathy
