first_imgDD BOOKS: This Must Be the Place by Maggie O’Farrell Published by Tinder Press HB€24.99, PB€18.99This new novel by award-winning author O’Farrell opens in Donegal in 2010 and goes on in an absorbing pace to reveal the ups and downs of a relationship across time zones and continents.The details and insights into the marriage of linguistic expert Daniel Sullivan and the beautiful, passionate actress Claudette Wells are not told in chronological order and so the reader is mindful of accumulating detail from other characters who slip easily in and out of chapters to help form a picture of this relationship. We meet Daniel Sullivan, a man with a complicated life. A New Yorker living in the wilds of Ireland, he has children he never sees in California, a father he loathes in Brooklyn and a wife, Claudette, who is a reclusive ex-film star given to shooting at anyone who ventures up their driveway.He is also about to find out something about a woman he lost touch with twenty years ago, and this discovery will send him off-course, far away from wife and home.Will his love for Claudette be enough to bring him back?Beautiful locations, moving forwards and backwards through time while weaving different strands of a story together, O’Farrell’s prose glides effortlessly along keeping the reader enthralled showcasing her wonderful gift of storytelling. A funny, moving, epic read. DD BOOKS: ‘THIS MUST BE THE PLACE’ BY MAGGIE O’FARRELL was last modified: May 28th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:book reviewDonegal Daily BooksThis Must Be the Place by Maggie O’Farrelllast_img
