Hmmm, how do I review this without spoiling things? Well, first off the book was well-written enough to keep me reading until the end, however the description they use to promote the book is HIGHLY misleading. Let's just say this is a fictional narrative of a family and their dynamics. The whole family secret angle is extremely overplayed. The ending pissed me off even though I knew exactly how it would end by page 300. It's definitely not a terrible book, but it is nowhere nearly as good as they hype.

This fictional book was well written and a page turner. The story begins in Ireland and moves to the U.S. through generations. It's a lovely story and I would read more from this author
