Boy meets girl in Galway City...one of Greeley's best
on 30 December 1997
Andrew Greeley has been bringing real life fiction, or is that fiction imitating life?, to readers for the past couple of decades and just keeps getting better.
G. Patrick "Toby" Tobin is, by his own admission, a computer hacker, a nerd. His agreeement to travel to Ireland in comliance with his great uncle's will is the step toward a grace which renews and affirms his own life. The quest to win the hand of his 8th cousin once removed, the fair Sara Anne, is facilitated by his "angel-cum-travel-agent" and comlicated by the UFF, his cousin's personal demons, and his own domineering family.
It will appeal to those who themselves yearn to respond to grace in their lives, the computer literate, and those who see dysfunction in their own nuclear families.
