Remarkable Page Turner, 24 Oct. 2015
This Trilogy would make wonderful Christmas presents for women of all ages. All three are beautifully written page turners. The characters are totally believable - every one can be seen so clearly - like watching a movie and wanting to hear them say their next line. Some will make you laugh out loud and others will have you sobbing. There are certainly surprises along the way - to make you catch your breath - make you mad and most decidedly have you roaring for justice - which comes - but all in good time.
I bought Four Streets on my Kindle for 2014 Holiday - I did not know at the finish that there were to be two more books, making this a remarkable Trilogy.
I purchased both - Hide her Name and Ballymara Road - only this week and could not put either of them down. Recommend all three most highly.
Being a Scottish war baby I can relate to shortage of food and how every penny still counted even in the 50's but this was eclipsed by the kindness of mothers who made others less fortunate welcome in their homes to share meals and many happy hours - day in and day out.
Being a Catholic with Irish ancestors I can also relate to the importance of the characters faith but am heartily ashamed of the cruelty of so much of the Catholic Hierarchy and trust that those days can never be repeated.
Now that I have experienced the quality of Nadine Dorrie I will certainly be looking at her other books.
