Claddagh based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
I have just finished the book and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. I ordered through Barnes and Noble and it took a couple of weeks to arrive but when it did I started reading. I am an avid reader and finish about 3 books a week minimum. I didn't want to finish the book because then it would be over. I really didn't 'read' this book but actually became part of it. I felt I was right there with all the characters who I came to actually care about. The writing style was unique and I found it very easy to read. Instead of reading words, the story flowed and became visual for me. Each character became a person with a face, body, and personality. I shared their ups and downs and disappointments and happiness. I think that is the sign of a brilliant writer - to transfer me into the story so that I lived it with them.The story grabbed me and wouldn't let go!
Claddagh traces the lives of an Irish American family and their resilient mother. The novel is set in the early 1900s and draws you into that time period. It is not only an enjoyable read, but it will also make you grateful for modern medicine and the washing machine. Good for a beach read or anytime!
This saga is a rollercoaster of emotions twists and turns that leaves you wanting more. I was truly impressed by the character development and courious on where Mr. Daley will bring us in his sequels.
