Ah this was okay…It was a sweet read I suppose, definitely one for the summer holidays or if you’re feeling like something that doesn’t test your brain! It’s set back in 1970’s Ireland but to me it seems that the traditions being upheld and ways of the characters are a lot more backward than only the seventies. Seems to me you could definitely go back another decade or two.
The characters are genuinely sweet though and even the people you’re supposed to despise you end up liking. Michael and Jane are a lovely couple who go through a lot of ups and downs together and even though the author seems to try to get you to dislike Michael, I for one, couldn’t help but feel a bit of sympathy and understanding towards him. Sweet book but won’t be rushing out to invest in any more of Dunlop’s books.
