I read this first novel by John O’Neill in a single afternoon sitting. It is the gripping story of the lives of three Irish children as they progress to adulthood and their struggles to come to terms with themselves and the events that they experience, sometimes with each other, sometimes not. As implied, their paths cross at times throughout the book. Mr O’Neill has a particular skill in writing dialogue that impresses so much, that I felt as I read that I was hearing the conversations rather than reading them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
