Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantasy brought to life Cecelia Ahern has done a wonderful job of bringing magical characters to life. I can't help but sympathize with the characters and wallow in their sadness. Beautiful...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If you could see me now I loved some of Cecelia Ahern's books and so I was looking forward to reading this book. However, it was not enjoyable. I continued to read it, never wanting to put a book down. I kept thinking it might get better as I read on, but it got worse. Finally, I had to stop reading out of pure frustration at the whole story.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 Elizabeth, an independent, fierce, rigid person, who is raising her carefree sister's six year old son, is on the pathway to a very lonely and loveless existence until she meets Ivan. Ivan turns out not to be who she thought he was, but that's what makes the story endearing. I was enthralled from the first page and couldn't put the book down. It was a great idea--that in the synopsis seems to be overplayed in modern literature--but it turned out to be something completely different. Not knowing a lot about Ireland it was great to also read a little bit about the Irish countryside. I did, however, find Elizabeth to be a bit indulgent. She can't seem to let go of this fairy tale image she has of her disappeared mother and she seems to whine quite a bit about being the self-prescribed keeper of both her father and her sister. There are 12 years separating Elizabeth and her sister, so Elizabeth essentially raises her. Then when her sister becomes pregnant at 16, Elizabeth takes on that responsibility as well. I personally thought that at 28, Elizabeth would have enough sense to know that the baby stood a better chance at being adopted then being raised by an unwilling aunt who resented his existence. I didn't particulary like how the book ended either because it left a lot of open questions. But for the most part I enjoyed the premise of the book and would definitely recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was ok This was definitely a great idea for a story. My only complaint was it dragged on the same issue for way to long and was a little to sappy for me.
