Do you ever come across a book in a different genre to what you usually read and find yourself drawn slowly but surely into the lives of the characters? Then at the end of the book finding it is the first in a series?
This has just happened to me. If you like Downton Abbey television series, if you like books about “the big houses”, or perhaps it is more modern rather than historical novels which appeal to you or yet again it is Irish themed novel? Then I have the very book for you. The House by A O’Connor published by Poolbeg Press.
Although the books spans many generations the imagery evoked by the author is brilliant. The characters are well-developed and the story line just begs for more. It is one of those books which lures you in until today’s world is forgotten.
As the title suggestions the house is the link between the characters of the various generations. As it says on the front of the book “one house, one family, three generations.
If you decide to read this book I would love to hear your thoughts on it.
