I really enjoyed this latest installment in the saga of the Walsh family. Keyes is into a new stride here, confident and writing very well (esp in comparison with some of the earlier books). The book goes to new depths of experience and feeling, but manages to temper it with the hilarious exploits of the rest of the clan and friends. Mammy Walsh is just hysterical.

I am glad I read through the other Walsh sister books first, as they do all appear in this one after their own stories have been told, and it would have been a shame to know the end before reading the beginning.

I hope there’s one about Helen soon – and Mammy, of course!
