I found this book disappointing in the end. The characters' lives were not compelling enough. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that I know little about Irish history. The author paints a lyrical picture of the settings, but I didn't care enough about the people and in the end, didn't believe the ways in which he says they were related.
