Book Review – The Gap: a Paramedic’s Summer on the Edge

Series Review – The Walsh Family

imagesI think Marian Keyes is like a racier version of Maeve Binchy. Very Irish but her Walsh stories have more bite and a more contemporary take on relationships. When you try to describe them they sound like you are dealing with very depressing topics but they are deftly handled with warmth and humour.
