I had got hold of this book under the mistaken impression that it belonged on my list of science fiction and fantasy set in Ireland (which I need to update), but in fact there is no sfnal content at all, just a rather well-done story of three generations of women from an island off the Connemara coast; they go back and forth to America, the fall in love, they give birth to each other, one of them dies at the beginning of the book but we get flashbacks to her story throughout. Not what I expected, but not bad.

(leedy, were you aware of this writer?)

In case my review inspired you to seek this novel out, I would advise you to leave it a few months - far too much difficult pr*gn*ncy as a plot theme!

Not sf at all but what you think of Tana French?
