The Cloths of Heaven = kindle edition

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.

 
     

Professional Reviews

Romance and suspense, and an unexpected turn of events
A novel in the traditional sense of the word. Geraldine is one of those writers who knows how to write a page turner - a good read. Yet, though she paints a colourful picture with her words, she can be ruthless too. She does not cower away from reality, and dares to see life as it really is. She picks an unusual viewpoint - her narrator is a teenage girl confined to a wheelchair, yet never do we feel a pitifulness in her. Physical disability is a fact of life, and though Sheila (the narrator) struggles with obvious obstacles, she has her dreams and desires just like any other teenager. Ironically it is her best friend Maud, a beautiful, intelligent girl, whose life is tragic. Read and enjoy.
