Unpretentious and not too fantastical, 10 July 2004
A lovely warm read that engages from the start.
If you like fantasy books, or Harry Potter-type books, then this may be for you.
Set in an Ireland around the 1700s - although this is left for the reader to infer - it does not get lost in mystical whimsy like other books of this genre. It sticks to its solid Irish farming roots are stays there.
Loved every page.
