Reviews

  • A compelling drama of transatlantic Irish life

    Billy Collins
  • Marries a deliciously old-fashioned style of storytelling with a fresh take on the immigrant experience . . . A warm, involving family drama

    Booklist
  • An epic story about immigration, identity and family . . . Keane portrays the complex and, at times, challenging lives of these working-class women with tenderness and compassion

    Guardian
  • Atmospheric, moving and brilliantly well-written

    Daily Mail
  • This atmospheric read that spans from 1950s Ireland to modern-day America and follows the fortunes of a woman on the run from a family secret

    Good Housekeeping
  • Keane's previous novel Ask Again, Yes, was on my best Books of 2019, and this is just as good. Its slow, melodic pace proves we don't always need fast action and twists. Set between Ireland and new York, it's about two sisters; one craves adventure, the other, family; both have secrets

    Prima, 'Best Books of March'
  • An American dream story, told over decades, taking its reader from rural 1915 Ireland to the streets of New York and back again

    Mariella Frostrup, Times Radio
  • A moving and sweeping story that takes readers from the west coast of Ireland to America, following a family of immigrants across the different decades

    Culturefly
  • I was a big fan of Ask Again, Yes and this is every bit as good

    Good Housekeeping
  • An epic yarn . . . an evocative portrait of the immigrant, but also adds greater subtlety to this theme of belonging

    RTE Guide
