When Gretta’s husband leaves home and doesn’t come back, she calls her three adult children home to help. They arrive to a record-breaking heatwave, and no idea how to find their dad.
Another enjoyable read by Maggie O'Farrell. Set within a dysfunctional Irish family who must come together after the disappearance of their husband/father.
If you enjoy Irish families bickering,(I don't), this is the book for you. Some sex and bad languaage. I would rate it M for mature.
Good beginning, slow middle, very good revelation. Familiar family issues in good setting spiced with some mystery. Enjoyable read.
Set during the UK drought of 1976, a father's disappearance brings together his estranged children. Although there is a mystery, which is resolved in Connemara, the novel is about family relationships. The mother is particularly well portrayed. A little disappointing compared to O'Farrell's other novels.
A really smooth read full of interesting characters and intriguing setting. Recommended!
Really enjoyed her style of writing.
A family comes together in the face of a crisis despite their own personal turmoils. Funny and sweet. Abrupt ending but an enjoyable read.
I love Maggie O'Farrell's work and this was no exception. A bit different to her other works in that it has a somewhat unresolved ending compared to her other novels. This novel is more character-driven than plot driven, so perhaps that is why.
