This book based in the early 1900s and in the Boston. On a quest to Ireland,  by a promise made, Maura journeys to Ballymun to teach.   

As the story line reads, the tension of living in another country offers insecurities and some isolation, as I would imagine, especially during the early 1900s.

Like a feeling of being a fish out of the water.  
As Jennifer writes, I can feel and hear the sounds, voices and countryside; She took me there. 

I felt a part of the story – which is what I do LOVE about Jennifer’s writing. 

An easy read. Sweet. With light tension through the book. 

I would recommend any books that Jennifer Deibel writes. She is a pure joy!
