I don't usually read to study but rather to enjoy. The terms some use when reviewing books don't fit with how I use books to entertain myself so if you are looking for a deep analysis here I recommend looking this book up on Good Reads. That said, I really did enjoy this story. I like nearly all historical fiction and this one kept me tuning pages in my spare time for a couple days. The setting is Ireland in the 60's. It has a hero who gets the girl and some bad guys and those who get caught up in between. Want to know more? I recommend you read the story.
