Format: Paperback
This book had me giggling from cover to cover, at times I ended up laughing out loud. The two elderly irish characters, Fee and Corrie really came to life, I could just imagine them shouting "jesus, mary and all the saints" in a thick irish brogue, and cursing the pasteurising machine, "Old Fart Arse". Abbey has spent several years not noticing just what her idiot husband has been doing to aid the population of a small Pacific Island.You have to read the book just to find out what a "pregnasaurs" are. I wanted to go out to buy some cheese to eat during my reading!

Quirky and sweet, this book tells a story of hope and strength of character. The book works on many levels and is very funny. It starts with the characters (linked by the cheeses in their fridges) in different corners of the world, at different stages in their lives. Then, through a set of coinincidences they converge in the timeless, wholesome Coolarny Farm in Ireland, where the magic truly begins...! The characters are well-developed and the chemistry between them impressive. The cheese sounds delicious too.

Light and frothy (or should that be curds and wheyey) with a solid base and a lingering aftertaste. Richer than it first appears. You'll want more. But enough about the cheese, the same could be said of this book. I read the first chapter or two and didn't really 'get it', I mean what is all this about cheese, then it took hold and galloped away with me and I read the remaining 2/3 in one go as I wanted to know what happened. Hint: don't skip ahead as I have a habit of doing, there are a few surprises. Peopled with a mad cast of characters in implausible situations and sprinkled with more than a touch of Irish magic, the tale ended too soon for me. I did wonder at first if the author had taken a snazzy title and then tried to fit a story around it, but so what if she did, the end product is very entertaining. I, for one, will never look at cheese in the same way again!

I've read one of Lynch's other novels `Eating with the Angels,' which I enjoyed- but this is a foodie book I've wanted to get my hands on for a long while. A book about cheese? A romance book at that? How can it NOT be fantastic?!

This quirky novel is set between rural Ireland, bustling New York and the remote Sullivan Islands (in the middle of the Pacific) and focuses on several different characters and their lives, with the stories all cleverly intertwining.

Funny and sentimental, this book is genuinely laugh out loud funny in places. The occasional Irish brogue especially adds a real flavour (no pun intended) to the characters personalities and actions. First we have Irish cheese makers Corrie and Fee, old gents who are cheese making geniuses at their mad dairy farm in Rural Ireland. With their herd of dairy cows, (all called Maria), they have pregnant teenage girls serenading them with songs from The Sound of Music whilst they're milked. Sounds odd, but its actually really humorous and just works for some reason in this slightly madcap tale. After a minor glitch with a batch of cheese when the curd goes awry, the men decide to hire a new cheese maker- and an outsider at that.

Step in Kit Stephens, a New Yorker and former stockbroker whose life has been down the toilet since the death of his beloved Jacey. Alcoholic Kit has come to Ireland for a break- and hopefully a chance of peace and redemption.

Finally there's Abbey- long lost granddaughter of Corrie. Sweetly naïve, she's blissfully aware that her good for nothing husband has been single handedly upping the population of a remote Pacific Island.

I can't believe that I'm the first to review this darling book! I noticed it in the library, and now am hooked on Sarah-Kate Lynch.

Abbey is living a deeply unsatisfying life in a tropical paradise, with a husband who believes in sharing himself with the natives (so to speak!) With her heart well and truly in pieces, whe flees back to her elderly grandfather and the sanctuary of his rustic cheese-making business. Corrie and Fee make one of the finest cheeses in Ireland, but are aware that their days are numbered, and they don't have an heir to pass the dairy on to.

Enter Kit, an American with some serious domestic issues, mix in a smattering of dysfunctional milkmaids, and the scene is set for a wonderful story. But it doesn't stop there! The characters are so well drawn (the cats are called 'Jesus', 'Mary' and 'All The Saints'), I cried with Abbey and Kit, and laughed out loud in equal turns. If you enjoy the gentle humour of 'Father Ted' on TV, this will appeal to you.

Sarah-Kate Lynch obviously loves her cheese, after reading this I wanted to buy a cow and start making my own curds - you can practically taste it off the page!!

So go on, give it a try. I am now knee deep in my second Sarah-Kate Lynch book (By Bread Alone) and am enjoying her magical writing all over again.

I read this book on my friends recommendation. She generally reads a different type of book to me, so was a little cautious as to whether I'd enjoy it or not.
The 1st 2-3 chapters were slow going, and I nearly gave up. But I continued, and am so glad I did! I was actually weeping in the last few chapters (boo-hoo style! and not just tears)!
A really nice, heartwarming book. READ IT and see for yourself.
