For me this was an ok read. A bit like a "paint by numbers" picture. Lacked a few layers of depth & a kind of magic development of a couple of characters.

What a powerful book. I can't wait to read the next two books in the trilogy. Dorries has created characters whom you can see with your mind's eye and whose tears are your tears. In this small area of Liverpool, a predominantly Irish Catholic populace makes do with little or no money. However, they are happy in all senses and when ill luck befalls one of them they all feel it. Anything else I say will spoil it for you so let me just say that it's a must read.
