  • A Fabulous Story!

    There's something about novels set in Ireland which attract me like a moth to a flame, and this is latest one I have so enjoyed. Many years ago, Julia lost her first husband - and the father of her son - to a freak accident on an Irish beach. Understandably, she has never returned .. until now. Having recently retired and now divorced from her second husband with whom she has a daughter, she has swapped residences with her now adult son, his wife and their young lad giving her an apartment in the city and them a larger house in the country. They are still in the process of settling in, but there are other factors upsetting their applecart, not least of all the appearance of Matt's ex-stepfather. Families are never easy - and this one is no different . . . From the very beginning, it's obvious that there is a back story to this one and it unfolds slowly and deliciously with so much happening in the present day to distract the reader from the history of this family. With the introduction of a second family and their relations, there is plenty to consider and I seemed to just fly through this book. I didn't really think about what was coming next; there was so much going on that the future wasn't really an issue. Well written, this has an easy flowing style which is so easy to read - an absolute pleasure in fact. I felt that the setting was just perfect, as was the author's understanding of the characters and the positions they all found themselves in. A really good read which resonated with me; not the first I've come across by Penny Feeny and I'll certainly be watching out for her future novels. Well worth the five stars I'm more than happy to give.

  • easily forgettable

    A pretty ordinary book. A set of rather complicated relationships, a trip to revisit a painful memory, a happy ending.
