It is the early 1960s in a country village in Ireland. Caithleen Brady and her attractive friend, Baba, are on the verge of womanhood and dreaming of spreading their wings in a wider world - of discovering love and luxury and liquor and above all, fun. With bawdy innocence, shrewd for all their inexperience, the girls romp their way through convent school to the bright lights of Dublin - where Caithleen finds that suave, idealised lovers rarely survive the real world.

    " I always enjoy novels about Ireland, Edna O'Brien gives us a realistic portrait of the "farm girls" fleeing to the city and all is not "happily ever after" "

    " Margaret Atwood's "Cat's Eye" goes twee and Oirish. I liked the "best friend / worst enemy" but I hated the relationship with Mr Gentleman. He was grooming her for sex for most of the book. Yuck. "

    " Not bad, but a bit repetitive. Her best work came later. "
