I really enjoyed this book by Janice Donnelly, set in Belfast, N.Ireland, the home of my birth,it took me back to so many places I knew well. Each character starting with Benny, as he starts out life in the Big City, finding his way, his triumphs and failures. The story is so well written that it captures you, I was so engrossed that I didn't want to put the book down as I wanted to find out what was coming next. It's life and that's why I think readers will be able to relate to it so well. Janice made me feel I was there, it made me laugh and cry and the suspense gripped me as I waited to see what was going to happen next. I was so disappointed when I turned the last page because I was enjoying the book so much, I didn't want it to end.
A most enjoyable read and I look forward to reading many more books by Janice.
