I was enthralled by this story and couldn't put it down. The author skillfully wove this story based on a series of historical events. Without much to work with, she brought the girls to life without turning them into heroes. The readers were also excellent.
I totally enjoyed this book. It was my first by Adrian McKinty; I'll definitely listen to more. Couldn't stop listening-kept me on the edge of my seat more than once. The narrator was right on too. His voice brought Michael/Sean to life for me. A few times I had to remind myself this was fiction. Thanks for the great read!
Never before had I read anything by Ms. Barr, but can say this will probably the last. I thought so much more could have been done with the story. She used words to describe what the protagonist was feeling and experiencing, but they fell short of bringing this character to life for me. The plot was weak and characters were two dimensional.
I truly enjoyed this light, heartwarming tale. I have always felt drawn to things and stories from Ireland and Scotland (my heritage). This was a relaxing and uplifting tale that I would recommend to my friends.
