“A book to be savored over a long weekend. I found it to be a poignant insider’s view of the modern Irish psyche through its vivid, richly portrayed tale of work, friendship, courtship, weddings and funerals. As an Irish emigrant myself it gave me an insightful update on life in Ireland today minus the gloss. The characters were well rounded and all too familiar in their outlooks and idiosyncrasies. I guarantee you will not fail to recognize the vividly portrayed characters among your own friends and acquaintances. The unhurried revealing of their lives and struggles bringing long lost memories of your own to the surface. A bittersweet, honest, thought provoking novel of real human substance.”
