Read in January, 2009

** spoiler alert ** A mystery concerning a family in Ireland in the 1850's. Carried you throuhg some generations. One of the main characters is gay and both of his lovers are abusive and end up getting killed. I loved the setting, lifestyle (living as a gentleman or lady) and how homosexuality might have been constured. Best part is how well written the main character's conflicted feelings were regarding split loyalty between his parents (one the gay, the other the adulterer). Intimidation kept me on the edge of my seat (Max Drummand and Hugh McGowan characters).
