What great writing. Ellen McKinnon is surly & I did want to have a bit more clarification to her feelings & reactions but nevertheless I'm glad I chose this book to read. I'm glad to have spent my time with Ellen & her lovely family. The author painted pictures with her words & kept me interested throughout.
Ellen McKinnon is a prickly woman. She holds a lot back and approaches life with suspicion. Born and raised in Northern Ireland, she marries Robbie and then leaves him for Liam, a southerner. She settles in with Liam in the South and experiences life without bombs, hatred and fear. Still she cannot relax. Finally she is called home to her mother's death bed. The author is a poet and it shows in the flow of prose painting word pictures and emotions. It took me a little bit to get into the story but the telling drew me in and I read faster and faster as Ellen questioned her life and beliefs more and more.
