3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to describe but well worth reading 20 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
First of all I will explain how I came about having this book to read and review, I won it in a Goodreads Giveaway. My mum instantly decided she would review this book! My mum, rather like myself loves books set in Ireland, the country is always so well described and sounds such a great place to be in. So what did my mum think? Initially she found it difficult to get into and found it a little slow but she persevered and although the book was in her words "not what I thought it would be" did finish the book. She says she did enjoy the book and doesn't wish to give away spoilers. The book is well written and the descriptions in the book are detailed. The books main character is Rose hence the title "Ireland Rose"
For lovers of the Irish culture and so on this book is ideal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading 28 Jun 2014

This story was more about life in Americas Deep South than in Ireland. It kept my interest, although at times there were huge grammatical mistakes.
On two separate occasions, the character Matilda's name was suddenly changed to Marina, and Carolina became Caroline then reverted back again to the original.
Nice small chapters, which I prefer .This was free when I downloaded it, and I would recommend it.

I chose this rating as the storyline did not keep me gripped, although I did finish the book and thought it was ok
