The Perfect Gift by Emma Hannigan

The Perfect GiftI hadn’t read any books by Emma Hannigan before, but I’m glad I picked this up from the new books display in the library. It is set in a sleepy fishing village, Ballyshore in Ireland.

Everything is just trundling along for Roisin, Liv, Keeley, Doug and Nell but then a runaway turns up at Nell’s lighthouse. She is the catalyst for everything that follows.

What a story, kept me engrossed from start to finish. Basically it is a family story, but the depth of emotion portrayed by the characters is immense. Tears, anger, love – what a combination.

Can’t have a family story without heartache, secrets, or deception, but that is balanced by all the good things that happen too. The plot is well worked and has a satisfying ending.

Definitely going to read some more books by this author.
