I’m telling you, you’ll need some tissues for the end of this debut novel from Irish writer Kathleen MacMahon. Addie lives in a small Irish seaside village and is having to look after her cantankerous doctor father, who’s recovering from a fall. Bruno is a middle aged American who has, in his own words, been thrown free, after he was made redundant from his job in the great financial crisis. He decides to go to Ireland to trace his ancestors and he and Addie are thrown together. But just when two people believe they have finally found happiness, life throws a nasty curve ball. Beautiful, heartbreakingly sad and highly recommended.

I love bittersweet stories like this that move me, and also remind me of what matters in life.

Thanks for the warning about the tissues Kerre. I love a book that stirs the emotions. I am keen to read this for sure after reading your review. It sounds very "zeit-gesity" with the financial crisis background to the plot.

I have just finished this book which kept my interest to the end. Likeable characters - but the ending did leave me a bit surprised as I thought the story might have been leading in a different direction.

It sounds exactly like my kind of book! Can't wait to read it and thanks for the review. Tissues already stockpiled ....

I found this book really disappointing. I can handle sad endings but it just dragged and I found Adele's actions quite annoying at times.

This is How It Ends

Lovely read where I could become part of the story and let my imagination join in.I started to feel I knew the ending and got quite sad when my thoughts were correct.A lovely read and just like life things dont always end perfectly but life was still wonderful and love was shared

This Is How It Ends

This is a well writtten book with humour, sadness and despair woven through the chapters. I loved it as it was completely different from any other book I have read in recent years, it has the "can't put down factor".

The Ant and the Ferrari

Having read and devoured The Winners Bible will certainly wish to read Kerry Spackman's latest book. Kerre originally sceptical about yet another self help book is full of praise for this. Sounds like one of those publications that is hard to put down. Elsa Collecutt
