Fun but not one i would read again.,
This review is from: The Disenchanted Widow (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Bessie Halstone leaves Belfast with her young son Herkie after the death of her husband Packie.
Packie lead a not too favourable life and his last job made him £10,000 richer.
Unfortunately Bessie didn`t know where he had hidden the loot and hot on her trail was `The Dentist`, an unsavoury character who wants his money back. The Dentist thinks she`s got the money and will stop at nothing to get it back.
The journey leads her to Tailorstown where a broken fan belt on her car is the deciding factor for Bessie to stay for a while and her dream of going to America is put on hold. The kindness of the local garage mechanic Gusty, sees her settled in his late Aunts cottage, and she finds a job at the local vicarage as housekeeper.
Also in the same village, local guy Lorcan Strong returns home to his mother after receiving a letter from The Dentist calling in an unpaid debt, and as the days follow Bessie and Lorcans lives cross.
The characters in the village are funny and entertaining in more ways than one, and Father Cassidy is not all that he seems, Gusty made me smile too.
I enjoyed the book, an easy read with an ending that left a .......... well you better read it to find out.!
