Editorial Review - Kirkus Reviews Girl gets boy (eventually) in this ebullient yet decorous romance involving an attractive upper-middle-class Irish-Catholic family in the years before and immediately after World War I. 'Tis the golden summer of 1913, the latest in a stream of golden summers that seem to have gone on forever for the Heron family. Their substantial home buzzes with children, friends, and relatives as adored Mama plans the life of each of the children and gives the credit to God. One son will manage the estate, another will be a soldier, another a priest, one daughter will marry well, and Sabrina will become a nun. But Sabrina at 16 is lyrically in love with young Garrard and has no intention of taking the veil. She resists Mama (no easy matter) until Garrard's mother brews a malicious scheme which shatters Garrard, sending him off to war and Sabrina off to the convent. The war and some miraculous revelations will embroil Sabrina and her family in tragedy, but our heroine and her Garrard will marry, even if the Heron house, the family, and the golden summers are gone forever. With Irish sea coast and dog-cart ambiance, a most attractive diversion.

Sabrina is a girl torn between love and duty in pre WW1 Ireland. While Sabrina and her siblings have many dreams for their futures, it is "the Mama " who holds the cards and deals their hands, one for the land, one for a wife, two for the church etc etc.

I did like this but I didn't love it. I won't say its depressing exactly, but it is frustrating, so be warned. And yet I can see why a lot of people really love this story, the plot is excellent and really holds a lot of potential.

For those who care, yes, there is a HEA but it came at a point where I had been frustrated for so long I was like, "whatever. good. I don't care anymore."

In saying that, I think it would make a pretty good movie if it didn't dwell too much on the nunnery (which was probably the biggest "Nooooooo!!!"" of the book) and if it allowed us a few more tender moments. I think Sabrina and Gerrard had great chemistry and I wanted to see them together more.


SEX: None
PROFANITY: Religious cussing (G, JM,&J, J, JG etc)

MY RATING: PG (for profanity)
Such a beautifully written book. I first read it in paperback and have worn my copy out. Had to have it in hardcover and plan to read it over and over again.
I love books set in Ireland, and this one's a winner. Set just before WWI, upper-class Sabrina has led a stifling life with "The Mama" dictating every move. She meets Gerard at her sister's wedding and just begins to taste love, when the bomb drops for Sabrina: her mother decided when Sabrina was born that she would become a nun.

Follow Sabrina's story as she and Gerard try to fight the odds to be together. The historical details are fantastic. On a recent trip to Ireland, my husband and I even visited many of the places mentioned, and they were just as described. A lovely, wonderful book.
