    OH MY!

    I read this story quite a while ago. Years even. And still I remember how whimsical and magical it was to read. If you are a fan of Alice Hoffman and the fairly new author Sarah Addison Allen then you will LOVE this book. Although the story could be quite sad it never is. Her upbeat way of telling what happens makes your mouth water for some cheese. I must tell that while reading this story my husband who works on hvac and also commercial refrigerators and freezers was sent on a job to fix a refrigerator truck. A delivery truck for cold items. Because they were so afraid the cheese would just go bad they gave an entire box (big box) full of gourmet imported cheeses to my husband to bring home. Brie, Swiss, Gorgonzola, St. Andre, Havarti, etc. And so I was very much spoiled whilst reading this extraordinarily magical book that seemed to have leaked into my real life with the cheese! A MUST READ! (for fans of this type of story)

    Magical

    Such a great book, I recommend it to everyone. So much whimsy and still based on the age old story of seeking love. Great, great, great!

    A page turner

    This is a delightful book which captivates and amuses. The characters are completely engaging and the coincidences which bring them together lead to a wonderful culmination. It makes me want to learn cheesemaking!

    Interesting book with several twists

    This is an interesting book. It was a bit slow until all the people came together, but once it does, it is a most enjoyable book. I enjoyed the several twists that occurred.

    Blessed Are The Readers

    Blessed are those who read this enchanting and delightful volume. Each chapter begins with a charming account of cheesemaking. The characters are well-developed and believable. Lynch adroitly weaves rural and cosmopolitan settngs, along-side old values and current-day problems.

    Refreshing romance

    In County Cork, Ireland, Joseph ¿Corrie¿ Corrigan and Joseph ¿Fee¿ Feehan produce the internationally famous Coolarney Blue cheese. However as the two Josephs age, they worry about their company¿s future. So they decide to embark on successor planning. <P> Corrie has not seen his granddaughter Abbey in almost a quarter of a century. Currently, she feels abandoned by her womanizing preacher of a spouse spouting the word to natives on a Pacific Island. She knows she needs a change of scenery from her locale and more from her ripping her skin for some alleged sin husband.<P> On an Atlantic island named Manhattan, alcoholic Kit Stephens has lost his way since his wife and child died. Recently he also loses his stockbroker position. He needs a change of scenery to start over. Fate enters the mix and soon Abbey and Kit meet at the Coolarney cheese factory.<P> This cheesy romance is amusing due mostly to the geezers, the cows, and the cats serving as interesting secondary characters. Abbey and Kit seems like nice people, but both sing the blues until they meet each other and see in the other a second chance. Throw in the magic of Eire leading to the audience singing along to the Sound of Music.<P> Harriet Klausner
