    I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway. I hate giving bad reviews but I really did not enjoy this book. The writing felt like something I would read in a high school English class. It was a lot of he said/she said, they went here, they did this and that. The characters were not very convincing. There were a lot of times that I would ask myself "who would do/say that?". I didn't feel that the first two thirds of the book tied into the end of the story. There wasn't really a connection other than I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.

I didn't feel that the first two thirds of the book tied into the end of the story. There wasn't really a connection other than Molly being her daughter. Describing Cissie's life seems irrelevant since it had no impact on what occurs to Molly. It felt more like two short stories that were stuck together. Even the book format I received slowed my reading progress. The pages were very large, the print shiny and no spacing between dialog. It was hard on the eyes. Hopefully it is just the giveaway book that is like that. Unfortunately I can't say I would recommend this book.

    This is a very unusual book, not only in terms of the physical format but also in terms of the content. When it arrived I loved the way it looked – it is an A4 sized paperback with a glossy cover and a proper book binding. Inside, it tells a captivating tale which starts with an ordinary family living in Ireland during WW2. Then tragedy strikes and the story moves to Scotland, England and finally builds up to a dramatic and chilling climax in San Fransisco.

Inside, it tells a captivating tale which starts with an ordinary family living in Ireland during WW2.

The story is told very simply using an almost childlike writing style, grammar and vocabulary. I really enjoyed this book. It is certainly not a top-class literary work, but it is a real page-turner and also an absolutely charming read which I would strongly recommend to anyone.

    This is a must read. You will find yourself wanting to read this in one sitting. The novel gripped me from the opening paragraph. Maintains suspense till the end.
