Thanks for shipping. It was so fast. It arrived last week already! It came with a crowd of birthday letters and parcels. So I stored it away ...

Such a great read!

Taken from convention. I have read one book by this author before and liked it, so now it's time for another!

Beautifully written, felt a bit slow in the middle but becomes more engaging towards the end.

At the meet-up

Not quite sure whether this is my cup of tea after all (after reading the blurb a bit better), but hey, I'll always know how to easily get rid of the book!

Spent a Sunday reading the book, and the only people I could feel bad for were Declan and his chosen family. Their world was crumbling, and no matter what they did, they were at everyone else's mercy if others were let into their lives. The three generation of women in the family were just insufferable, and the tiny village community around them even worse. Not sure how to rate the book, therefore I won't be giving any stars, but will read some more Toibin in the future.
