“If you can’t say them, write them. They last longer that way. Write all your words, Annie. Write them and give them somewhere to go.”
I loved this book, it started slow and I could figure out what was happening from the first chapter itself, it took a while for me to fall for the characters but I did, I fell hard. its a beautiful book, full of history, romance, love, family, and feelings.
“‘There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away,’” I quoted.
I did not wanna put it down once I had started it, it gave me goosebumps, made me cry and smile, made me feel patriotism and respect for freedom fighters not just from my country but all of them. Ireland bloody history and struggle is so similar to that of India, it is a marvel, this book is a true gem.
it blew me away, I wish it did not end but it did and oh so perfectly. Amy is so so talented, this was my first book by her and I can’t wait to read more.
The writing is beautiful and perfect, these kinda stories can sometimes get confusing but not here, this one made perfect sense. I loved Anne’s character and that of Thomas and Eoin and Michael and almost a lot of them. the way they forgave the not so good characters was beyond me but they are better people than I am.
this book brings you knowledge along with a beautiful story on family foremost and then romance and the love of your country. Love is the theme, different shades of it beautifully portrayed.
