Faithful Place Digs its Claws Into You

Like a Glass of Fine Wine, I Savored Faithful Place

Each chapter filled with the eerie details, bits of humor and sarcasm sweetly tucked between pages.  Read more >

Faithful Place by Tana French is a book full of 'hindsight'.  All it took was the first sentence of the prologue to hook me in;  "In all your life, only a few moments matter.  Mostly you never get a good look at them except in hindsight, long after they've zipped past you...".    Read more >

Law & Order: Faithful Place

Tana French's Faithful Place is totally not the sort of book I normally read. Like, at all. I tend to favour books with young women angsting over cute boys, maybe with a shoe or a purse on the cover. But, my mother and my boyfriend really loved French’s first book (In the Woods), so I gave this one a go.  Read more >
