My Father Left Me Ireland: An American Son's Search For Home
My Father Left Me Ireland: An American Son's Search For Home, as letters to his father who has been an intermittent presence in Michael’s life. Dougherty’s mother and father ended their relationship in Ireland before he was born. While he was raised in New Jersey, his mother spoke to him in Irish and his father visited from Dublin every few years. Facing fatherhood, he wrote letters to his own father that are heartfelt and moving. At some time in our life we answer identity questions for ourselves about who is kindred. If we are fortunate, we also come to understand the sacrifice that parents have made to improve the lives of their children.
