My rating: 4.5 Stars
My opinion: This book was recommended to me by another Netgalley reviewer and I am thrilled it was. Being of Irish descent, I have always been fascinated by books set in Ireland, but also of the IRA. This book fed into both of those interests of mine. To boot, it was just great writing. The story opened slowly like an oyster holding onto a pearl. The characters were as vivid as looking at a photograph with multiple layers and dimensions that a reader feels that they know them as well as a friend. Finally, the author was able to do a whopper of a twist that left me with a "WOW..didn't see that coming!" moment, which I love when books can do that!
I do agree with my buddy who recommended it. DO NOT SKIM THIS BOOK...YOU WILL MISS OUT ON IMPORTANT MOMENTS!
