The Irish ones are Angela's Ashes, 'Tis, and Teacher Man, by Frank McCourt. I love those.

: I'm not sure what to key in to find titles, though.

: I read "A Child Called It," and, oh gosh, what is it called...the one where the boy and his family grew up poor in Ireland and he made his way to America. He had two books. So much for my memory. I thrive on the true stories like those.

: I had heard about a story about an Amish family and the secrets of abuse told, but again with the title and memory. Darnit!

: Anyway, I was hoping someone here might know the kinds of books I'm looking for and be able to lead me in the right direction. I'm not morbid, really, I just seem to stay intrigued by those kinds of books. Heck, maybe I am morbid. LOL.
