    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review If you re reading this memoir with a critic s mind and an editor s scrutiny, you will possibly physically cringe at the amount of easily avoidable grammatical errors, punctuation typos and odd organization..So, how did I, Miss Obsessive Compulsive manage to enjoy this book without covering the margins in red annotations Easy I DIDN T read it with my usual raised brow and magnifying glass Okay, not easy, but definitely worth the effort Somewhere in Chapter Childhood slash Adolescence, it suddenly dawned on me that Pauline Kiely must have one of the best memories Ever It s not Sheldon Cooper material, but to remember details about neighbours and kids and pets and the colour of the dress that your mother was wearing when the TV was blaring that sitcom and your father said those exact five words while Yeah Gives a whole new meaning to a memorable childhood But then it got me thinking to have years worth of memory stored Doesn t that mean there was something there worth remembering Henceforth, I decided that I would continue my read with an open mind as my fiction saturated library certainly needed a breath of fresh memoir Twas a wise decision Pauline Kiely tells four generations worth of stories with both incredible honesty and unmissable love I can understand why she decided her life was worth memoiring The mixture of strong minded French Canadian and Irish characters was chuckle...

    There are many parts of this memoir that are funny, not the least of which are the chapter titles.And the author s love for her extended Irish French shines through loud clear, from the variety of family pictures to the often amusing anecdotes, one of which forms the book s title When asked why she had so many children, despite being poor, the author s Irish grandmother replied, to be certain, there was no poverty between the sheets I learned some interesting history of Ontario, Ireland Quebec Despite living in the province of Quebec for many years, I didn t know that the word tuxon is a French slang word for a robust little man in reference to a baby toddler.I took exception to the fact that there were a number of misspellings typos, too many to ignore Because words matter to me I found these mistakes distracting Also, I couldn t figure out why the author included the entire The Cremation of Sam McGee poem all of it The writin...

    Note This review was first posted in my blog Book and Ink A book about an Irish French family from half way around the world definitely sounds like an interesting read for me The book was just that an interesting memoir of an oversized family by present standards.The story traces the roots of writer s family who emigrated from Ireland to Canada Written almost chronologically, the story begins with writer s parents getting married and eventually having the writer and her siblings The writer eventually falls in love, gets married and has her own kids and has her fair share of losses Being from a large family myself, I know what fun it is when all folks get together The writer sure had a lot of fun Sadly having so many characters in a book had me all confused It would have helped if the writer had a family tree in the beginning of the book instead of the ending Some anecdotes in the book had me in splits like the title, where her grandmother replies as to why she had a lot kids in spite of being poor, while others lacked wit and humor The writing was pretty raw and much like what a seasoned blogger would write if he she were to write a book in terms of language The book has quite a handful of spell errors that had been overlooked The high point of the book would be the emotion...

    This is a memoir of a very large French Canadian family written by Pauline Kiely With the title No Poverty Between the Sheets, I figured this would provide a humorous view of growing up in such a family Kiely provides this looking back from when her parents first came to Canada from Ireland and France to the day she was born to her time as an adult This memoir is filled with amusing anecdotes, comedy and raw emotion I loved reading about this family s experience through time, especially the 60 s and 70 s It was very interesting to see how music, the mix of cultures, drugs and the changing decades affected the family I really loved all of the stories about animals and the song lyrics from her family The story and some of the anecdotes did seem a little disjointed at times, I never really felt a good flow However, it was a good book to pick up put down over the day Overall, this was a different type of memoir, one about family ties and bonds with the uniq...
