    " Gutes Buch! I like! The end was MUCH better than from her first book :) "

    " I liked this book in terms of the story and atmosphere. I liked most of the characters as well. However, the dialogue of the American characters really bothered me. An upper class PhD would have much better grammar and it almost offended me how badly that dialogue was written. Still, as most of the story was centered in Ireland and London it was only small portions of the book that bothered me. Still a decent read overall. "

    " Grania Ryan has tried to escape her life in New York city with her long time boyfriend and the despair of the baby she has just lost, by returning to her roots in southern Ireland where she finds comfort in the love of her mother, father and brother. Just as her wounds start to heal she meets Aurora Lisle, a ten year old girl who is sleepwalking near the edge of the cliff and in danger of going over the side. She quickly becomes involved with this beautiful precocious child who seems to be wise beyond her years. At the same time her mother warns her of the dangers of getting involved with Aurora's family because the Liles and the Ryans have a troubled history of conflicts. Against her family's wishes she spends a lot of time with Aurora and her father and eventually sets out to uncover the real story behind the discord. Through letters and secrets well kept by the Ryan family Grania uncovers the history of how the Lisles and the Ryans were closely interwoven for the past hundred years. A lot of Irish history, intrigue in a poignant plot, some romance here and there and a dash of soap opera is what kept me glued to this novel to the very end. Read it, you'll love it! "

    " A great yarn, well worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nanci | 1/15/2014

    " A good read, but it needed a better editor. I can't stand when non-Irish or non-British characters use terms only used by the Irish or British. A girl from CT won't refer to herself as someone's flatmate when she's living in NYC, for example. Also, not too thrilled with the ending, though it does make sense for the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille | 12/31/2013

    " Maybe even 3.5 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fran Serratos | 12/24/2013

    " An excellent book; I was not able to put it down until I finished reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyra | 12/12/2013

    " I loved this story, even more than the Orchard House. I'm not fond of the back and forth between time periods but it flowed well enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 11/20/2013

    " Solid, entertaining, multigenerational tale set in Ireland. The narrator Aurora is a bit beyond belief. She is portrayed as an "old soul" even though she is girl throughout the novel. Pretty good storytelling. Dragged on a bit, particularly at the end. Three stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gunvor | 11/10/2013

    " this is a 4 minus - still, very likable characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 10/25/2013

    " A unique book with memorable characters. The beautiful setting of Ireland and the flashes back to the past make for a great read. "

    " Read with tissues near by "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Holly Deemer | 7/8/2013

    " Very good book, could not put it down finished in one day!!! Must Read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 2/1/2013

    " I'm glad I didn't allow the mixed reviews to influence me against reading The Girl On The Cliff. I really enjoyed it. The characters and storyline were not necessarily believable, but I think it would make a great romantic chick flck, and I like chick flicks. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cristine | 9/26/2012

    " Fascinating complex story with a twist on the narrative. Only complaint is that endometriosis was described as having 'cysts on your ovaries'. Ummmm...that is not what it is. But it didn't affect the story so perhaps I am merely being anal :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 8/13/2012

    " This book had potential ... And it's so frustrating when a book has potential and just never gets there. The dialogue in this book was poorly written and annoying and some of the side plots were ridiculous. But the story itself was intriguing and I finished just to find out what happened. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Virginia Hess | 5/20/2012

    " good writing, set in Ireland, but plot improbable. In the vein of Kate Morton. "
