This is a compelling, fast-paced read with a plot that builds inexorably. The characters are finely drawn and the writers, despite the fact that neither are Irish, manage to weave Irish Traveller culture throughout the fabric of the book.
They manage to authentically capture an atmosphere of suspicion between the Traveller community and the rest of society. They also beautifully convey the emotional stiflement among characters haunted by the spell of the past.--Irish Independent Newspaper, August 2013<br \><br \>This is Isabella Connor's first book and I hope it won t be the last because I eagerly await the next story.
If you're looking for a great book to finish out your summer reading, I recommend this one to you!--Long & Short Reviews, September 2013<br \><br \>This really is an excellent story. Combining the world and tradition of the Travelling people with the upper-class snobbery of the English Stewart family and adding in a mix of supporting characters. The plot gathers pace, starting slowly, introducing the characters and building to an ending that I really didn't predict. 5 stars! --New Books Magazine, August 2013

The story begins with rich business man Jack Stewart's shock when the wife who deserted him years before is killed in a road accident. That's just the start of this absorbing novel which features two love affairs plus strong links with Ireland and rural England.
The story drew me in, little by little. The writing is tight and the author's knowledge of Ireland, English country life and the traveller culture which is an essential part of the story seemed to me to be faultless.
This was a book that delivered more than it promised, with many twists and turns plus a sweet happy ending.
Recommended for those who like a love story but enjoy a twisty mystery and a well-depicted back story.
Luke wakes up in hospital alone to the discovery that his mother has died but it's clear that there's more troubling him than just his injuries from the crash. What is his story and what is his connection to Jack?
I really liked the fact that there were two lead characters that were both male coming from different backgrounds which made for fascinating back stories. And even though we never get to meet Annie in person, she's very much an integral part of this story linking both Jack, Luke and their families.
From the very first chapter after Jack receives the phone call I was immediately hooked and a lot of questions were buzzing round my head wondering why Annie had left Jack in the first place, where has she been all these years, and why had she kept such an important secret from him? All the answers and some even more shocking secrets were uncovered over the 8 hour period I spent today reading this book, I just couldn't put it down!
I downloaded the book for free, and by the time I had recommended it to my husband the price had gone up to £1.99. However, it is such a good story I do believe that if I had paid full price for it I would not have felt cheated. I found it very well written, and the story carries you along with no annoying editing faults. Great stuff, I really enjoyed it.
I liked the ideas behind the story, the writing was almost perfect for most of the time. The ending happened so fast, this made it a very exciting ending.
What I particularly liked was the character of Matt. He was the patient and caring one, prepared to listen and not judge those around him. It was good to have the two other strong roles of Luke and Jack in the story, they worked against and with each other as the tale is revealed.
The only thing I was not very keen on was the over the top descriptions of the Stewart's wealth, it distracted me from the tale a little and I found myself skipping this type of description.
A good read, longer than your average book but an easy read due to the quality of the writing. I would recommend.
Like any great mystery book, the plot twists and turns with each new revelation making your sympathies and suspicions swing from one character to another. The twist, when it arrived, made me see the whole book in a different light. Needless to say, I did not see that twist coming.
This is a brilliant book - well plotted, well written and hugely enjoyable.
