Caroline's Sister by Sheila O'Flanagan

Caroline's Sister

To her younger sister, Tessa, Caroline O'Shaughnessy has everything - great looks, easy charm, and the distinctly desirable Damien Woods. But for Caroline, things don't feel quite so rosy. She'd dreamed about moving in with Damien, but not about having his child, just yet. And though he did the honourable thing when she told him she was pregnant, it obviously wasn't what he wanted either. And as both of them struggle to make the best of a bad job...

    Een heerlijk boek. Het leest echt heel vlot. Het boek is ruim 700 pagina's dik. Toch heb ik het vrij snel uitgelezen, aangezien ik ook een paar dagen weinig heb gelezen. Het had van mij trouwens nog wel dikker mogen zijn, want ik vind het gewoon jammer dat het uit is. Dit is zo'n verhaal dat nog makkelijk door had kunnen gaan. Ik heb inmiddels al een aantal boeken van Sheila O'Flanagan gelezen en meestal teleurstellen ze niet. Het zijn wel chickl...

    I always have to prepare myself before reading a Sheila O'Flanagan novel - purely for the sheer length of them! 'Caroline's Sister' managed to successfully fill 726 pages and yet despite that, I enjoyed all of it and didn't once think "WHEN will this END?". Sheila doesn't simply have a 'start' and 'end' to her books, she follows the characters through a period in their life in detail. No twists and juicy cliff-hangers, just decent story telling t...

    It took a bit of time for the story to get going but once it did, it was easier to read.I did enjoy this book, and will read more of her books in the future.

    Life comes easy for Caroline O'Shaughnessy. She has good looks that make those around her adore her. She's her father's favourite.

She lacks her sister's good looks and easy charm, and it seems that absolutely nothing comes easily for her.When Tessa makes a monumental ...

    This is such a long book, which I don't usually mind but it did feel at times like this was padded out a bit, and it wouldn't have hurt the story if it had been shortened a little bit. It took a bit of time for the story to get going but once it did, it was easier to read.I did enjoy this book, and will read more of her books in the future.

    I do love reading stories based in England and Ireland. Just the vivid setting, the lingo and the characters. Great read, filled with trials and tribulation, love, lust, life, decisions and how to live with what we have chosen. Well worth reading.

    Really got sucked into the story, however, the characters were a bit flat and the book itself was very long. Did enjoy it though.

    It was a good story although I felt the ending was a bit rushed for such a long book.

    Enjoyed this, although i felt the story could have been shorter. It did seem to go on a bit longer than necessary for me.
