Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Recollections in Tranquility is a sequel to Immigrants’s Son. O’Prey examines his fifteen years in religious life, comments upon his training, and compares his eight years teaching in parochial schools with his twenty-nine in public education. His conclusions are pertinent, poignant, sometimes perturbing, but always relevant. With honesty and humor he cites contrasts and similarities, and ultimately concludes that the essence of his life has been his family. Marriage to a supportive wife, parenthood, and now grandparenthood have enriched his life. Retirement provided the chance to reflect and write. This resulting chronicle portrays a life of satisfaction and his descriptions evoke images of personal success
