This novel is one of the most enthralling reads I've read in years.
It contains an an immence spectrim of live as rural Irish lived it in the early decades of the 20th century. It is a powerful novel and a successfull blend of fiction and authenticity.

I couldn't put this book down! It was such an all-encompassing immersion into Irish life. It was set in a place that is dear to me, and so thought provoking, I thought about the story long after I finished the book. There was such a full range of human emotion that Hazel brings to life. I would highly recommend this book!

I really loved the story I found it hard to put the book down!I had intended on reading the first few pages and before I knew it I had half the book almost read.I have been to the village of Culdaff and it made the story come to life even more for me.

I began reading 'For love of Mary Kate' and found it the most compelling read ever. I burned the -midnight- oil until I finished the entire book. It is also a wonderful historical document of life in rural Ireland in the 1920s. I highly reccommend this book,

This is a spellbinding novel which captivates from page one.It tells a compelling story of three women in 1920s Ireland and makes a statement about important matters--love morality, belief in human nature with all its frailty and the deep love for a child. A must read which stays in the mind long after the bedside lights go out.
