Another stunner by Vivienne Dockerty. This is one of those thick, engaging books that are difficult to put down. A young Irish woman’s life is turned upside down when she flees the failed potato crop and disrupted family. She comes with her new husband and family to England.
Dockerty holds a close point of view and we are with Maggie all of the way. She does not have an easy life but she is feisty and brave. All of Dockerty’s characters are well drawn. They are rounded, believable and consistent.
There is pace and tension a plenty in this tale.
Here we can admire the craft of a master story-teller.
I am so pleased that I have the sequel, Dreams Can Come True, waiting on my shelf. I do hope this writer will continue producing these satisfying novels for us.
