3.5 stars. Enjoyable novel telling the story of a trans-continental romance between big-city Irish flight attendant Sile and small-town Canadian museum curator Jude. I had a great time reading this book and couldn't put it down. Emma Donoghue really has an ear for conversation and includes a lot of very funny and realistic banter among friends (something I remember from the first book of hers that I read, Stir-Fry). At the same time, there was something that didn't quite ring true for me in the primary romance. I can't put my finger on it, but I just didn't totally believe in them. The cast of supporting characters, by contrast, were extremely believable (and I loved getting to meet Jael from Stir-Fry again!).
