    Although the background information is interesting, I found this novel somewhat boring The characters are all flat and the plot itself is flat There are just too many consultations between the Reverend Mother and her informants.

    A simple read not too demanding I do like the character of the Reverend Mother Moreover the book does not shy away from the social problems of Cork during the Irish civil war in which this book is set.It also shows us the continuing effect the war of independence had on the town.

    Not a bad book but I am just not that interested in the characters I think it seems like the author isinterested in giving me a history lesson than telling me a good mystery story and developing her characters I think I ll skip future installments.
