Review

Praise for "The Matchmaker of Kenmare"
Delaney wrings the pulp out of a Jack Higgins-like premise and turns it into something more satisfyingly literary.
"-Publisher's Weekly"
One of the best fictional wartime couples animates veteran Delaney's darkly wistful novel.

Delaney re-earns his reputation for total reader engagement with his latest deeply thought-out novel...As artillery guns fire overhead, hearts ache: a compelling combination.
"-Booklist"
"Delaney grabs the reader from the first paragraph with his comfortable and nostalgic style. His metaphors are so visual, readers can taste, smell and see the action." -Summer Moore, Associated Press
