Sheila O'Flanagan
A real treat ... [Meaney's] ability to weave stories around a seemingly random cast is simply uncanny ... she wraps her readers in the company and comfort of ordinary strangers

A cracking yarn ... Meaney can excavate the core of our human failings and present it to us, mirror-like on the page ... Which makes her utterly credible, utterly authentic, utterly irresistible

Meaney weaves wonderful feel-good tales of a consistently high standard. And that standard rises with each book she writes
