Hers is a very eclectic tale, part love story, part magical experience but mostly just very entertaining. When her drunken father marries again Tully is introduced to Hope and Mercy her new stepsisters. They will provide the escape that Tully needs but what sort of life has she escaped to?
Tully is a fantastic character with a rich and entertaining voice and I loved this book.
A little slow in places but that added to the atmosphere I think. When the pace speeds up towards the end of the book it becomes very gripping.
