A stupid book. The author couldn't be bothered to do the least bit of fact checking - very irritating. The book takes place before the Summer Olympics happened in Atlanta (1996) but she has the characters going to see a Harry Potter movie that wasn't released until 2004.

At first I thought it was going to be a good predictable Rivers Siddons read. Then it got very strange and spooky and took off into another plane of existence. It left me with an ick feeling, like I was misled.

I haven't read Rivers Siddons for several years and found that her story line was pretty predictable. I finished the book thinking "Why does the main character cry so much?" Still, I finished the book due to my author loyalty more than my interest in the story.

This book was mediocre at best, though I finished it. Not one of my favourites.

Was looking forward to this new Anne Rivers Siddons book, but am somewhat disappointed...

Not one of my favorite of her books. Far-fetched Irish "magic".
