Christina McKenna depicts Irish people as they really are; caring, strong, some a little more rough around the edges, and caught between the Nature of God and the religion of God. The Godforsaken Daughter is a mixture of two characters that are lost in very different ways; in ways we all have found ourselves lost. The daughter herself appears to have been Godforsaken as she tries to deal with the mother and sisters after the loss of her father, the only person in her home that loved her. The other character, a psychiatrist, was on a lovely life path to be abruptly pushed off. As in all "small towns or islands", lives converge in such odd ways. This book presents a very important message - the past is past and today is anew - along with how some have made anew happen. I have loved all of Christina McKenna's books despite how hard it is to suffer along side with the characters. You grow to cherish them; even excited to recognize them in other books. The Audible versions are excellent with the personality the accents give them.
