4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Read, 10 Mar 2014
Firstly, at the risk of annoying some of the books detractors, the author CAN write. I felt a sense of place, a sense of atmosphere and a genuine chill when reading about the damp, dark corners of Borley Rectory. This sort of reaction requires skill and should not be dismissed just because the book may be lacking in some areas for some people.

I heard Marian Keyes talking about her book on the radio, she seem so straight forward, warm and funny that I thought her books must be good. I was not disappointed. I really loved this book, it hurt, hurt me so much a cried through half of it, but then it also had be rolling around laughing......... bit like life really! I have never known the joy of finding that one "true" love, I never understood when friends talked about "loosing themselves" to love; but after reading this book, I feel I have a slight glimmer of an understanding, Thank you Marian, you have made my world that little bit brighter!!
