"Heartwarming read -ideal for the holidays!…"
Recently I was given a copy of this novel, I had never even heard of the author. What a wonderful, touching, heart-warming book. When I used to read ”family sagas”, the grannies were usually scullery maids in the depression. In this book, the granny is a teenager in the 70s trying to choose between a nice career in the civil service or university, going out dancing with her pals and meeting punks! She could have been me! The book shows how even 30 odd years ago a teenage pregnancy was a thing of great shame, especially in rural Ireland where the novel is set.
