    couldn't put it down

    I really enjoyed this book. I grew up in New Orleans so I recognized a lot of the areas they spoke about. It took me a while to discern if it was based on fact or fiction. The first half of the book is in irish brogue, so it can be a bit challenging at times to understand. By the second half you are thinking in irish brogue so it all makes sense. It's a great read, one you will want to read over & over.

    Oldie but really a goodie

    Since this book was written in 1985, I doubt anyone will see this review. I found this book in the "on your honor" bookshelf of paperbacks at our library. I had read the first book by this author, Night Jasmine and loved it. Well this book is terrific. I cannot put it down. I have "Beach House" by James Patterson, a 1 week book, but I can't start it till I finish Lace Curtain. Living here in New Orleans makes it even better, since the book is based here in 1838. A great book.
