Je leest het verhaal vanuit de perspectieven van de twee vrouwen Iona en Sally met heel af en toe een klein hoofdstukje vanuit het perspectief van Frank. Ik kwam maar moeilijk door het verhaal. Eigenlijk vond ik het verschrikkelijk om te lezen, maar toch legde ik het niet weg. Ik moest en zou weten wat Frank als uitleg zou hebben waarom hij twee vrouwen heeft. Toen ik eindelijk bij het stuk aankwam waarin de 'uitleg' zou komen werd ik zwaar teleurgesteld. Moesten we het met dit 'antwoord' doen? ...more
ik las de achterflap van het boek en was meteen verkocht.

2 vrouwen getrouwd met 1 man, dat kan niet goed gaan.

en dat gaat dan ook niet goed, het plot zit al in de eerste 50 blz en nadien kabbelt het boek maar door en door. tot bijna aan het einde plots iets belangrijks gebeurd of nee eigenlijk ook weer niet, want dat zat er al een heel boek lang aan te komen.

het boek kabbelt net snel genoeg om ervoor te zorgen dat je het boek toch wil uitlezen, maar afgaande op de korte inhoud had ik veel meer v
At the beginning of 'Yours, Faithfully' we meet Iona Brannon. She has been happily married to her husband Frank, who she wed in the Carribean, for the last five years. They are desperately trying for a baby to make their family complete - although unfortunately Iona has just discovered that she is not pregnant this month. Iona and Frank have a very strong idyllic marriage even though his business takes him away such a lot.

In the next chapter we meet Sally who has been happily married to her husb

Taken from my blog

Sheila has written a great story which has verisimilitude whilst still keeping the reader interested. Not what you would normally expect, but the characters keep the story going. There isn’t much romance in this book, seeing that Frank spends the majority of it in a coma! But the way that it has been written, being from each character’s point of view ensures that Frank has as much depth and interest as the other characters. I was left questioning a
Its strange to think how life can throw so many twists and turns and how people can react to those events. This book shows this clearly in through the events of Iona's and Sally's life and how it wasn't what they had originally thought there life was. The book didn't have the best start but by chapter three I was hooked right up until the end.
A good holiday read featuring one man and his two wives. The story of a bigamist living in Dublin is a bit implausible at times, but the three main female characters are likeable.

This was the book that I kept pushing away so that I could read other books that were on the top of my list. But when I finally got my hands on this one, I, quite surprisingly, got hooked to it.
A nice read, this one.

Not a likeable character in sight!

Interesting concept, eh?

It's the first book I've read by Irish author Sheila O'Flanagan and I enjoyed it.

It's 599 pages and we get to meet Iona and Sally (Frank's wives), Jenna (Sally and Frank's daughter) and Siobhán (the cop investigating the situation).

I enjoyed the writing style and I liked the characters.

Does Frank come of out the coma? If he does, who does he choose? You'll just have to read it to find out!
This was a great feel-good story about three women (I particularly liked the story form the garda's perspective) making their way through very difficult circumstances. I'm not totally convinced Sally and Iona would have become such good friends, but then I don't read Sheila O'Flanagan books for gritty reality, I read them for the fabulous characters that draw you in, and the happy endings.

Recommends it for: everyone loving stories that seem to be clear and definite - but which aren't anyway!
This book is simply gorgeous! I don't know what to say as the books belonging to my favourites become more and more - this one has become one of it, definitely!
Even if you think life is nothing else but crap, it can be worse - somehow. But there's a positive piece in everything!

I love this book, I love the author and I am absolutely going to read more of her stories!

I read this book back in 2007, I was on holiday, and it rained for 4 days straight, so I was given this book to read. And oh my goodness, I couldn't put it down, I was gripped from the very beginning, it's an easy read and it has a strong plot! Sheila is a brilliant author, I've read quite a of her books. :)

I don’t want to say too much about the book as it'll give the story away very easily.

It is a story of how 3 peoples lives inter twine and how a major event can change everything for ever.

The over theme is that no relationship is perfect how woman can be woman on there own not defined by their partners

Being married to or living with one female creates enough issues, yet Frank elects to be married to two women at the same time and manage separate lives unbeknown to the other spouse. An entertaining read Unfolding and entwining the lives of the characters. Sad but uplifting ending
Thanks to Sheila I have regained my passion to read paperbacks. I thought I had totally lost it completely after reading so many ebooks on the kindle. The story was easy to get into from the very start and I found the story enjoyable to read.
I enjoy this author's books a lot. They are great for some light reading. This one was different from the usual "chic lits" though, involving as it did bigamy. I really enjoyed it and enjoyed watching the characters develope.Couldn't put it down!
Loved this book. Very easy to read and couldn't put it down. I wish it had had a different ending though. It would have been better if Frank had woken up and survived I think. I felt a bit cheated that he died.
the first book I have read by Sheila O'Flanagan. loved it looking forward to reading some more. I liked her style of writing, and the story line kepted me hooked. very happy nice summer read.

Recommends it for: romantics, human realtionships
First book was so much fun, all based in Ireland. Just had to get another one of her books. This one has a great plot.
I will leave with Sarah to read the two books.
Quite lovely
I figured out Frank's secret very quickly but had no idea where the story would take me. I had to keep reading to find out! I liked the way the charachters dealt with their lot.

As you can see, a Dubliner all my life. My parents owned a grocery shop in the Iveagh Markets, in the Liberties area of the city and I guess city blood runs through my veins.

As a child I enjoyed reading and telling stories and everyone thought that I end up in a job which had something to do with books and literature. But though I applied for a job in the library all of the job offers I got were i
