Sheila's Reads

I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

TransAtlantic by Colum McCann

TransAtlantic - Colum McCann

I have mixed feelings for this book.  Colum McCann is a wonderful writer.  His way with words is one of the best I've read.  He's a good story teller.  He's got strong characters and I cared about them.  The story itself was depressing.  It covers the story of 4 women in a family beginning in the 1860's ending in the present time taking place in Ireland, United States, Canada, and ending in Ireland.  Their lives were hard.  Had I not been at work when I finished reading this I would have been in tears.  I could identify with these women and the hardships they endured.  This is worth reading but emotionally difficult.
