Dear Cecelia Ahern -

You have just gained a fan. This being the first of your books I have read I have been converted. While Tamara appears to be annoying, self-centered and overall not nice, I believe that was the entire point of the book. To show us how quickly things can change and how you adapt and become more aware of your actions.

I loved everything about this book.  If anything I wish the book made more appearances, and yet I understand why it didn’t – the focus is on Tamara and how the book changes her perspective.

From the very first page I wasn’t able to put it down. For someone who gets quickly bored with books, that is an amazing goal to accomplish. I am also a reader that once she finds a book she loves, she refuses to let it go. I enjoyed this book so much I want others to read it and will be hosting a giveaway (plus buying myself a new copy).

I very much look forward to catching up with your previous book and reading any others you come up with.


Overall: B+



The magical new novel from number one bestseller Cecelia Ahern. Tamara Goodwin has always got everything she’s ever wanted. Born into a family of wealth, she grew up in a mansion with its own private beach, a wardrobe full of designer clothes and all that a girl could ever wish for. She’s always lived in the here and now, never giving a second thought to tomorrow. But then suddenly her dad is gone and life for Tamara and her mother changes forever. Left with a mountain of debt, they have no choice but to sell everything they own and move to the country. Nestled next to Kilsaney Castle, their gatehouse is a world away from Tamara’s childhood. With her mother shut away with grief, and her aunt busy tending to her, Tamara is lonely and bored and longs to return to Dublin.When a travelling library passes through Kilsaney Demesne, Tamara is intrigued. Her eyes rest on a mysterious large leather bound tome locked with a gold clasp and padlock. What she discovers within the pages takes her breath away and shakes her world to its core.
