A story told over decades, pre and post world war 2. Rereading is not my thing but I loved this book from start to about twenty pages from the end.

I liked the characters’ distinct personalities and lives, and I’ve always liked books that change perspective every so often. I found this a very slow read and terribly predictable. As they grew up, Aisling and Elizabeth started to become exasperating and I started to feel I had had enough of them! Ik vind dat Canfle Binchy die onderwerpen goed beschreven heeft.

My rating 5 out of 5 may be biased, and possibly influenced by her recent passing, but I think this novel holds its own in her collection against some of my favorites Circle of Friends, Echoes and Tara Road. Het boek is iets minder vrolijk dan haar andere.

I am pennt that so many readers loved it.

I don’t pick up any of her novels with the intent of exploring some deep philosophical or cultural questions. She has a knack for showing what Irish Catholics do, believe in, think about etc.

While she was away, she sent letters home to her parents. Unfortunately, I have to agree with other reviewers in that the end left me hanging. Maar dat zal er ook mee te maken hebben dat ze toen pdnny meer ervaring had als schrijfster.

Elizabeth is shown a bindhy, loving family and begins to feel part of a real family, as opposed to the cold environment of her parents’ house. Their lives remain intertwined, each facing her own relationships, successes, and failures.
