Wow! Just wow! The author transported me to another time and place where I followed Jimmy and Donal down the streets of Belfast to the shipyards where they crafted giant vessals that they could only dream of sailing away on.

Their relationship, from first tentative glances to sharing a bed for what they thought might be the last time for a while, progressed at a perfect pace to build tension without dragging on and on. Writing short stories is difficult, to complete all the plot without exceeding word count, but Donal agus Jimmy pulls it off in style.

Tons of research went into this story, yet P.D. Singer makes the telling seem so effortless, as she spins a tale that seemed so real to me that I held my breath on occasion, waiting to see what happened next.
