4.0 out of 5 stars A gritty view of Ireland, April 20 2004
This review is from: The Guards: A Novel (Paperback)
Private investigators, that staple of American literature and criminal justice, do not exist in Ireland. The Irish will not tolerate informers. That leaves only fools--and drunks--to look into cases the Guard have closed or ignored. To the Irish, truth is not as important as silence.
The Guards is at first glance a little tale with an anti-hero, but proves to be much more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the title fool you!, March 10 2003
This review is from: Second Thursday Circle (Paperback)
SECOND THURSDAY CIRCLE isn't a candy-cotton story about a group of proper small-town ladies devoted to tea parties, choir practice, and good works. It's about a group of very real women whose efforts to support one of their members as she struggles through a series of crises, involve them all in the repercussions of loss, love, and lust; trust and betrayal; friendship and enmity.
Your understanding of the feminine mystic will be enhanced by the characters in this well-written, fast-paced novel as Ms. Burns skillfully portrays their strengths and weaknesses while they strive to fulfill their obligations to each other and to their own best selves.
