In this revealing memoir of childhood and later life in Northern Ireland, Pauline Neville evokes her lifelong friendship with her cousin Peggy. She recalls her family's history, recapturing their various experiences. On another level, she considers the value of life itself, and the mysterious nature of dying. Her outspoken views on both sides of the Troubles adds a dimension of controversy. "Peggy" is a rich fabric woven from moving and powerful themes.

"Pauline Neville is an Aladdin. She rubs her lamp of memory and scenes from a vanished past, both happy and painful, miraculously reappear. The pictures from her childhood in Northern Ireland are wonderfully engaging. She has written a letter to the dead: and, as time shifts and scenes change, they come alive again, vivid and humorous. It is a piece of magic." - Michael Holroyd.
