What I Loved: The unraveling of the story through clues early in the book, but fleshed out at later times.
How I felt: I really enjoyed this book, but I did disengage a bit when the writing focused on the Irish wars. I felt like it pulled me out of the story a bit.
To Read or Not To Read: Definitely a To Read, although i didn’t like the Ireland fighting, the rest of the story was quite intriguing!
I tried to explain this book to my husband and didn’t do it very well. I hope to do better for you!
Anne Gallagher’s grandfather raised her on his childhood stories of Ireland in the 1920’s. On his deathbed he makes her promise to go to Ireland to spread his ashes. While there she travels back in time to 1921 and finds herself mistaken for her great-grandmother, previously believed to have died. She has been shot and is found by Dr. Thomas Smith, her grandfather’s guardian.
Anne adopts her great-grandmother’s identity while she tries to adapt to what has happened to her.
I loved the time travel and interwoven lives of her ancestors and her. I wasn’t as interested in the parts about the struggles of the Ireland fights happening during the story. They helped moved the story along, but her life and the events she encounters were so much more intriguing. This was definitely worth reading though!
