Set in 1970's Limerick, this Irish tale is inspiring. The characters are complex, not easily molded by the reader into one mind set. Sheila, dealing courageously with cerebral palsy, still has a darker side that makes her deliciously human and real.
Maud, her best friend, fights a lack of crippling self esteem with tragic results, yet has redeeming and lovely atrributes to educate the reader. The plotline flowed and kept me turning pages. It is a lovely first effort from an author I can see rivaling her Irish predecessors. Well worth your investment of time and money. Quite a heavenly read indeed!!
