"'To my son: May there always be work for your hands to do. May your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane. May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you. May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.'"
This is a quick and funny read, how two people are crazy for each other, but prefer to hide their true feelings and decided to stay away for 3 years, can you believe it? This is what I call stubborn! They will have to talk and re-discover each other, I hope it will be worth!
This book is about love, but not just the one you share with your partner, the one you share with your family; parents, brothers... It's not easy to grow if your family have a path in mind for you, what do you have to do, continue with your dreams or follow your family business? Never an easy question to answer, someone will be hurt no matter what you decide... this is more or less Eoin's problem, a part that he loves his wife but doesn't know what to do to repair their marriage. Sometimes I think we think too much about everything, if we have a problem, why we hide it? It's always worse!
I am not sure I agree with how this book presents the Irish people, they can be familiar, yes, but they say they are stubborn and act before think... I am not sure this only applies for Irish, or all the Irish are like this, for now (after almost 2 years) I haven't met any Irish with this characteristics...
This is a book to read if you are searching for a romance with a little of mystery, there's a lot of love and some art included!
