Customer Review

on 7 June 2018
The Orchid and the Wasp is the story of Gael Foess and her family, rich banker dad Jarlath, orchestral conductor mum Sive and delicate younger brother Guthrie. Gael's parents are frequently absent, either physically or mentally/emotionally from the children and Gael seems a lot older than her years. The story takes place during the rise and fall of the Celtic Tiger, an time of major financial upheaval in Ireland for everyone. I found this book to be a good debut, and having lived through the time of the Celtic Tiger and subsequent downturn, a very interesting read from that perspective, but ultimately, overall, I found the book underwhelming. However, I would be interested to read more from this author.
