Maurice Walsh (21 April 1879-18 February 1964) is one of Ireland’s most beloved novelists and remains, if not Ireland’s most accomplished storyteller .

Maurice Walsh (21 April 1879-18 February 1964) is one of Ireland’s most beloved novelists and remains, if not Ireland’s most accomplished storyteller, the benchmark against which all subsequent generations of Irish storytelling is measured. To many, including Ernest Hemingway, he was the greatest storyteller of his time. Sales of Maurice Walsh’s books grew steadily, especially in the wake of an unsolicited and generous letter from J. M. Barrie (of Peter Pan fame), praising The Key Above the Door. Maurice retired from government service in 1933 but his success as a writer continued. Maurice himself died on February 18, 1964 in Blackrock (a suburb of Dublin).

An excellent, entertaining book, set in Ireland of a century ago, by one of my favorite author. Hugh Forbes, the title character, is what many men would want to be, and I'm sure women would wish their men to be more like him. He's courageous, principled, strong, courteous,...you get the picture.

This story is a romance with lots of other genres mixe in, but seamlessly. Since I purchased it, I've read it several times, and it's one of the books I prefer not to lend out, unless I'm sure the borrower will return it!

By the way, I mentioned that this book is based on life in Ireland, but it's not only for the Irish...I'm from the Caribbean (British), and it really entertained me.

This was an okay read. At least I finished it, rather than having to put it down.

Allan Ladd with dark hair could have played this role.

A good read that can bring tears to your eyes.

The book is a pleasure to read. It has adventure, romance, and wonderful descriptions of the Scottish highlands. The only caveat is that the author (not surprisingly, given his background) uses a lot of Gaelic words, which are likely to be unfamiliar.
