This review is from: Belfast Girls (Kindle Edition)
I came to this book, having heard good things and having already had the pleasure of reading short stories by the same author. I wasn't disappointed.This is a wonderful coming of age story, following the lives of three friends growing up in Belfast. The characters with their individual hopes, fears and ambitions are beautifully portrayed at all ages, along with the respective men in their lives. The Troubles were depicted in varying degrees throughout the story culminating in a shocking finale.
It's easy to get caught up with the girls and the good/bad decisions they make which ultimately affect their lives.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and I'm now looking forward to this author's next book.
