Time and Tide: Reflections of Rural Life in Times Past is a collection of personal glimpses, told from a woman’s perspective, of rural life in times past. Sadie Bennett tells of the impact that the ever-changing farming scene has had on herself, her family and her community. The story is written in her own words and while it relates to her own personal experiences, in many ways it reflects the typical experiences of rural women in general in a 20th Century Ireland that witnessed so many radical changes in farming life.
