It's great, basically. I think the only thing that bothered me about it was the fact that all the main characters were very much on the periphery of the action. I also didn't like Adam as much as the author seemed to. I wish the relationship had been allowed to build for a little longer, so that I'd have rooted for them a little harder. But Domin's version of Dublin in 1922 was totally believable, and rather exciting. It was incredible to think that my beloved grandmother, born in 1917, was five years old when all of this was going on around the corner! I really liked Gerald and Mary.
Not sure the ending was that believable, and it felt rushed to me. I wanted more with these characters. Ultimately, it's not as satisfying a love story as it is a historical novel. But Domin is a definite talent. I'm going to try her Roman series next.
