During the early 80s in Ireland, a teenaged Fergus and his uncle illegally stumble upon a body in a bog. While the mystery of the body is being researched by an archeologist, the politics of Ireland comes to the forefront.

I saw this somewhere on the web and then again at the library in audiobook format, so I decided to bring it home. After peeking at it on Amazon (highly rated reviews), I decided to give it a go. It ended up being not something I felt compelled to read and really shouldn't have continued with it. There are just too many others books I'd rather get to. However, there are Irish historical elements, mystery and young love that I can see would hold other people's attention. It just wasn't for me.


  1. Oh well, it happens. I hope your next book is better.

  2. I loved her London Eye Mystery and wrote about it. If you are interested:

    I do hope to read BC this year. I wonder how I'll like it.

  3. I loved A Swift Pure Cry...but sometimes you wonder about those reviews and if people wrote glowing ones because she passed away right after writing this one????

  4. Bermudaonion ~ Me, too. :)

    Nan ~ I wonder, too. I'll come by to see your post. Thanks for the link.

    Staci ~ I found out about her death after I read it. I wonder, too.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
