Fantastic read full of interesting characters.
Wonderfully written you felt the emotions of all the characters, the description of the settings were so vivid. Highly recommended.
It is a story showing insights of what happened to women in Ireland in the 50’s who had a bit of fiestyness in them or who had a child out of wedlock. Supposedly put in these places as they have brought shame on their families it was a way people hid secrets and these girls in their families from outsiders.
I found myself reading until the small hours and thinking about the characters throughout the day. Their lives living a different path to how they think they will live. Of believing lies by people who have no happiness themselves in their life.
The story is set in two periods of time - the early 50’s in Ireland and also the early 80’s in Ireland and India. Sometimes when stories jump back and forth with different times the story loses something but I can definitely say that that doesn’t happen in this case. The times are so different from each other that they are kept separate from one another.
The characters are believable and you can feel emotionally about them in their love, losses and pain. This is the second book I have read by Ann O’Loughlin - the first being The Ballroom Cafe, which I enjoyed as well. I’ll be definitely looking for The Ludlow Ladies to read next.
The ending was too sweet and chocolate boxy which was out of keeping with the rest of the book. Everyone just seemed to accept the situation at the end and were so nice to each other. Not for me, I doubt I will read any other novels by this author.
Nevertheless, the prose is excellent - I enjoyed the book & read it to it's conclusion, though I preferred this author's previous book "The Ballroom Cafe".
I like this author's style very much & I look forward to any future works.
