    Quite a good book actually I will admit it took me about 80 pages to get into but once you get all the characters sorted and know who is who it just gets better and better It is actually two stories in one current day and the other about 100 years in the past I loved both stories, but probably enjoyed the story 100 years previous better maybe only because i do love that sort of story I do recommend will probably takethan a weekend r

    Jane Eyre is my all time favorite classic book Whiskey Island is my all time favorite non classic book I generally do not like to re read books Once I know the story, I can t find the patience to read through it all again This story, for some reason, is an exception I think I ve read it three times each time I fell in love with it The characters are so well thought out and the story lines so fantastically woven together It is perfection in

    Women s fiction is not romance There are formulas for both types of books, but they should not be lumped together Romances ultimately are about love and marriage Women s fiction usually include romance, but the growth of the women characters is very important.Emilie Richards has written a wonderful novel There is definitely some happily ever aspects to the story, however there is muchThere is the history of parts of Cleveland, there is lots of info

    I absolutely loved this novel about an intergenerational Irish family growing up in the Whiskey Island neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio The characterizations of the Donaghue girls Megan, Casey and Peggy as well as their love interests Niccolo Andreati and Jon Kovats were very strong, as well as those of Lena Tierney and the priest who took her in when she was being abused by her employer, James Simeon This is not a short book, 507 pages, but the chapters we

    The best Emilie Richards that I have read The Irish Donague family is followed both in the 1800s through a priests journal, and also in current day The characters are amazing hardworking people, but not without failings The depictions of 1800s Irish immigrants was believable as it was heart wrenching The present day Donague family are also interesting to follow One of those books that you don t want to end
