“This charming and romantic novel by the author of Driftwood Summer and Between the Tides will appeal to women's fiction fans and romance readers.”
New York Journal of Books
“This heartwarming story of love and pain is written in narrative, as though the reader is outside looking in. Irish proverbs supplement the beginning of several chapters, adding to a mystical touch in the writing. Vivid descriptions of the Southern country where the brothers grew up as well as the lush Irish geography really help place the reader right in the story.”
