Journal Entry 1 by Cowpunkmom from Three Hills, Alberta Canada on Saturday, June 28, 2003

8 out of 10

This is a well-written tale, parts of it very amusing...but ultimately a sad and lonely story of alienation and loss. It takes place somewhere in the country in Ireland, and revolves around the story of Beulah, a member of a very strict Protestant sect, called the Poleites.

The story jumps around in time from Beulah's last days to her earliest memories, all the time avoiding the one central time in her life, the time that everything led to and came from. Discovering what this event is becomes the main thrill in reading this book!

And just a side note about the actual book itself...I bought it new from Chapter's discount table, so it is in great shape! It's a hard-cover, which I NEVER treat myself to, and it even comes with a ribbon bookmark! Very fancy...

Released on Monday, June 30, 2003 at Marie's hands in Rosebud, Alberta Canada.

Marie has traveled Ireland, so I wanted to make sure she read this book. She isn't a BookCrosser yet, but maybe she will be soon!
