Editorial Reviews


"'Vivid and powerful, BEATRICE is a novel told in gleaming moments, like a string of pearls brought one by one out of the dark. It has the compelling power of a detective story, following a trail of ghosts into the past' NIALL WILLIAMS 'It totally grips the reader's attention quite literally to the very final paragraph... it marks the debut of a deeply mature and skilful voice...' DERMOT BOLGER, THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT"

This is an entertaining read, several stories woven en together in an exciting story of love and betrayal. I particularly liked the descriptions of Ireland, the country and the people. If you like a good story, but one that challenges the reader a bit, this is for you!

Format: Paperback
This an enchanting story of events concerning an Irish family in the recent past told across two generations and from the perspective of members of that family. The narrative, which is dramatic and intriguing, unfolds slowly but effectively. One is never sure until the end how the resolution will occur but the author manages to sustain a compelling interest throughout until the very end. Her evocation of provincial Ireland: the mores, the culture, the inhibitions and repressions are truly masterful.

This is a tour de force!
