This is a heavily characterised novel and the structure is superb, allowing one to be fully immersed not only in the narrators head, but in another time and place as the plot is skilfully moved forwards without repeating what we already know, and without revealing all. There is a strong element of psychology allowed to influence character motivation, leaving no doubt that these events happened. Vivid historical detail, the suppression and sexual naivety of women, the super-rich and the super-poor and the iron fist of the church are all incorporated to great affect.
Another gripping family saga, this time set in Ireland - the bleak description of the damp miserable setting is so real you can almost sense the experience. Without wishing to spoil this for any person reading this review, I found her descriptions and writing of one of the characters so chilling that there were times when I was actually scared of continuing to read (even though I have read this book twice before in the 70's and 80's!)
If you liked Penmarric you will also love this - I'm really sorry that I have finished it as all her early books are a pretty hard act to follow. Need to hunt for another one now - will probably re-read Wheel of Fortune or the Rich are Different. All these four books above are wonderful reads for anyone who likes gripping, intelligently written novels to get lost in.
