The Godforsaken Daughter by Christina McKenna
March 2015, Lake Union Publishing
Rating: * *
Nicely stitched together. Quite an unusual set of circumstances leads to the intersection between Ruby, Jamie, and Henry in a little town in Northern Ireland.
The incidental characters like the attorney who reads the will are so neatly drawn I can see them clearly in my minds eye.
The main characters have victim written all over them, which is the reason I rate the book 2 stars. The sundry side characters, however, are enormously entertaining and prevent the story from sliding into melancholy. Were they the main characters, I’d rate this 4 stars.
Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for the copy I received in exchange for an honest review.
