Read in November, 2011

A young woman with Down's Syndrome, Eve Hayes is an unlikely heroine. Her journey, however, is wholly absorbing - sometimes joyful, sometimes bittersweet. She sees things in a way that other people do not and this is what makes this story so delightfully unique and uplifting. She witnesses everything around her - death, violence, the caring of family - and manages to put it all in an over-arching perspective through which the reader can identify with. Most of all, there is a magical element to the way in which the writer unfolds some of the events. Martin Treanor's prose is to be savored and I'm hoping to be able to read more books by him in the future.
