`We walk in the footprints of great women, women who lived through hard times on farms, in villages, towns and cities. The lives of these women are an untold story. This book is a celebration of the often forgotten "ordinary" women who gave so much to our society.'
Alice Taylor


In her eagerly-awaited new book, Alice salutes the women whose energy and generosity made such a valuable contribution to all our lives.

'[It] warmed my heart and reminded me of the value of family, friendship and community... I was enthralled... wonderful.' Irish Independent on And Time Stood Still

MEDIA REVIEWS

I highly recommend it ... I thoroughly enjoyed it

-- The Arts House, Cork's C103 and Cork's 96FM

highly enjoyable read

-- Ireland's Own Christmas Annual

highly enjoyable read

-- Ireland's Own

in these pages, we see Taylor's remarkable gift of elevating the ordinary to something special, something poetic, even ... Taylor avoids the mantel of social commentator in this book, and this is surely part of her charm. She is a teller of stories, simply that. She writes from personal experience and records the experience of others, without the gravitas and authority of an historian, but with empathy, wit and considerable poetic elegance. In The Women, she records fifteen remarkable lives that would otherwise have been forgotten. She is to be commended for that. And the fact that, like all of her books, it's a thing of gentle beauty

-- Irish Independent

one of Ireland's favourites ... an absolutely beautiful read ... beautifully finished ... amazing stories that wouldn't be known without you ... the photographs in the book are special in themselves

-- In Conversation with Weeshie Fogarty on Radio Kerry

a really special reading experience ... it's an amazing book with some wonderful stories

-- Shannonside FM and Northern Sound's Joe Finnegan Show

a book that will grip you by the heart

-- U Magazine

wonderful ... put The Women on your Christmas gift list

-- Bandon Opinion

I reckon it's going to be another winner

-- Tommy Marren Show
