No Poverty Between The Sheets
When Pauline’s Irish Granny was asked the question, “If you were so poor why did you have ten children?” Her answer was, “To be certain, there was no poverty between the sheets!” Pauline’s father is quoted here as saying: ”We’re all links in the chain of life, and this I believe is life everlasting.” Her mother contributes: “Your children become the jewels in your crown.”
“This book flows like the Pefferlaw River. I couldn’t put it down. No Poverty Between the Sheets is a romp through Pauline’s childhood, enhanced by the spicy language of her mixed French Canadian and Irish heritage. A horse theme weaves its way throughout this book. You’ll laugh out loud, and also cry. The book is a testament to her father, and his unfaltering love of his family.
– Rod Urquhart, Editor of Voice of the Farmer and Horse Talk Magazine.
"I couldn't put this book down! I started laughing on the very first page and couldn't wait to get to the next paragraph. What also impresses me is Kiely's style of writing, which is so honest and down-to-earth. I have to say, if you're not Irish or of Irish heritage this book would make you want to be."
– Dave Devall - Chief Broadcaster at CFTO-TV(1961-2009)
