Like most people of Irish descent, I thought I knew a little bit about the Auld Sod. This novel is well-written and presents a segment of recent history that has been kept hidden for years, not only by the Irish government but the Catholic Church. Within the pages, however, there is also a touching story of a woman discovering her father and, at the same time, coming to understand herself. It's a beautifully crafted story that keeps you turning the pages.
